"This was possibly the best experience of my life. I consider myself very fortunate having spent this time in China. No journal entry or words can capture what this meant to me, nor can it capture the essence and beauty of the culture.... I miss China, the faculty, our students, our buddies. I talk about it on a daily basis and so far have kept in touch with other group members at other schools as well as some of the Chinese buddies. These memories are very dear to my heart and it is something I will treasure always. I hope to return to China again someday"
--Misty Johnson, VSU

"China seems very different to me after coming here when comparing my view of it before I left and when I was younger. But after coming here I have gained a totally new perspective on China. The biggest change to my perception was the noticeability of the size of the population in China. The 1.3 billion people in this country would allow one to believe that the streets are jam-packed with people, leaving very little personal space, but it is not like that. Hearing the different population numbers for cities like Beijing, Xi'an, and Zhengzhou, where they are all much larger than Atlanta always made me think that the overpopulation would be tangible, but all of these cities seem no different when it comes to just the amount of people you see when walking around.
--Kelly Smith, GSU
