University: Sun Yat-sen University
Description: Zikai Li is a third-year undergraduate student studying Tourism Management with a focus in Exhibition Economy and Management at the Sun Yat-sen University in Guanzhou, China. He strongly believes that the best possible way to learn about something is through firsthand experience. His goal is to become a social scientist that identifies structural problems in society and looks for solutions to fix them. He believes that educational inequality in China is a major issue because students from rural areas of China lack equal access to both basic and higher education in comparison to their counterparts in urban areas. Zikai is eager to take his academic knowledge into the real world during his time in the United States; and hopes to gain experience in a non-governmental organization to help with current studies and social justice programs.
