["John","McHugh","u7ea6u7ff0","Student at Indiana University Bloomington","Bloomington, IN","Education","United States","I am a student at Indiana University Bloomington and am a member of the Chinese Flagship Program. My first experience in China was in the summer of 2012, when I spent 6-weeks in Changchun studying Mandarin through the National Security Language Initiative for Youth scholarship program. Over the summer of 2014, I travelled from Beijing to Kashgar, Xinjiang with Where There Be Dragons on a program that focused on understanding the complexities of Chinese society and the legacy of the Silk Road. In the summer of 2015, I will be going to Suzhou, Jiangsu on a Critical Language Scholarship through the U.S. Department of State for an 8-week intensive Mandarin program. nBeyond my Chinese language and area studies, I am passionate about local and international advocacy work. Through my leadership positions on campus organizations such as the Civic Leaders Center, Oxfam IU, and Sky IU, I work to promote and realize social justice, peace building, and multicultural dialogue and policy strategies. I am also in the midst of creating IU\'s first journal of international studies in the hopes of fostering an institutional space for serious self-reflection and research on our changing world."]
