Meet Ming, our student of the month from China!
CIEE: What is your favorite part of your typical day in the U.S.?
Ming: My favorite part of my typical day is my Ceramics class. I like to create things and I can make whatever I want.
CIEE: What is your favorite American food?
Ming: My host mom and I make a very delicious zucchini bread and I also love smoothies - made with lots of fruit!
CIEE: What has been the most surprising thing about America or your new host city?
Ming: I didn't know about the Metroparks - I loved running Cross Country thru the park and also bike riding in the park. I was surprised about the beauty of the leaves changing colors.
CIEE: What have you shared about your own home country/culture since you’ve been in the U.S.?
Ming: There is a big difference in the typical school day so I have shared that with people - they are surprised at how hard we study. I also have shared spicy Chinese recipes with my host family and cooked it for them.
CIEE: What have you learned about yourself so far?
Ming: I have learned so many different ways to exercise - Cross Country, yoga class on Sunday morning, tennis lessons and now I am on the swim team. I can try anything and do my best at sports!
