["Justin","Thomas","u9676u6b63","Front Desk Assistant at Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, Harvard University","Boston, MA","Education","United States","My first trip to China was in the summer of 2009 as a volunteer English teacher in rural Jiangxi province. Then, as a junior at Georgetown University, I studied Chinese language for two semesters (2010-2011) through the CET program at Harbin Institute of Technology. In May 2012 I graduated from Georgetown with a B.A. in Chinese. In May 2014 I graduated with an M.A. from Harvard's Regional Studies-East Asia (RSEA) program, where I wrote my master's thesis on mental health (specifically, obsessive-compulsive disorder) in China. I currently work as a front desk assistant at the Harvard University Fairbank Center for Chinese studies, and will likely serve in the Peace Corps in China beginning in June 2015. "]
