Today was my first day in Beijing. I need to remind myself that first days are always slow and not much happens and I need to be ok with that. In the morning, I tried to call my contacts and made some plans, and some other plans got rescheduled. This is what happened the first days I was in Shanghai.

What I’m doing differently here is that I am not doing any walking tours in Beijing, though I think maybe I should sign up for something. It’s a good way of orienting myself into a new city.

For many of us on our MA in Intercultural in International Communication overseas residency in Hangzhou, the theme of 'hospitality' was evident throughout our stay. Our buddies certainly showed this on many occasions--a willingness to help us with so many of our day-to-day challenges in navigating a new city and culture.

As a girl who has known the privilege of an education, I am passionate about educating and empowering girls. I believe girls deserve an education that empowers them to create change within their community, but more importantly, we deserve to claim our own worthiness.
