["Ariel","Marissa","u6797u96c5u6587","Student at Macaulay Honors College @ CUNY Hunter, Chinese Major and World Traveller","New York, NY","United States","I caught the traveler's bug at a young age, and I got the opportunity to start learning Chinese in high school so I jumped right in and started discovering this new language and culture. During my senior year, I traveled to China for the first time on a scholarship to Beijing. As a college student, I am forever lucky to be studying in the heart of Manhattan, where I not only can keep up my Chinese studies at school but also become part of the bustling Chinese community. I'm passionate about teaching, learning, volunteer work, and seeing the world!"]
