US Campus Assignment: UC Berkeley
Description: Molly is a graduate student majoring in English Interpreting at Sun Yat-sen University. She is preparing to enter the workforce as a public primary school English teacher in China. She is interested in a variety of topics in education. Her volunteer experience in a free summer camp educating families about traditional Chinese culture in 2013 encouraged her to contemplate the impact of education. She believes that disseminating self-development ideas and methods through education can significantly motivate people to start reviewing themselves and change for the better. As a student majoring in interpreting, she conducted research into cultural communication barriers, and her various interpreting experiences also taught her to be active and adaptive. During this program, she hopes to learn more about Americans educational philosophies on self-development and explore more ways in teaching to inspire students.
