"Traveling to China has been by far the greatest trip of my life. Being an adopted Chinese-American teenager, it was so surreal getting the opportunity to travel back to my home country and to experience the unique Chinese culture. Through the St. Andrew’s Global Studies Program, I was able to hike the Great Wall of China and Tiger Leaping Gorge, stay with a host family in a twelve-story apartment in Kunming, volunteer at a Deaf school and Kung Fu school, try so many different cuisines and delicacies, and take hundreds and hundreds of pictures throughout the entire trip."

"My experience in Germany was distinct from anywhere else I have travelled because of the unique German culture and the bond I formed with my host family. In the short two weeks I was there I got to learn about Germany from museums like the Haus der Geschichte in Bonn and the Stasi Museum in Berlin, while also getting to see what life is like for teenagers now while staying in Bergheim and going to school with my host. I’m so thankful I got to go on this trip with my classmates from St. Andrew’s and make new friendships across the country, and I learned so much during my time there.”
