I know some parts are really choppy...
Can you help me add more stuff and fix it up ?
It's for a scholarship that will reduce some of the aboard tuition.
Learning new things has always been one of things I enjoyed doing. Like others, I believe having knowledge is power. Being able to study aboard would be a great experience and a great opportunity to gain knowledge. I want to study aboard because it gives a hands on experience, culture, and language. In my future AmeriSpan experience I hope to experience numerous things.
One of the world's oldest civilizations that still exist today is China. Being able to study aboard in Beijing(this is my first choice, I might change it).
Studying in a different country is an exciting adventure. Having to be in a new environment will have difficulty like culture conflicts or lack of proficiency in a language it will me me learn to adapt to new things, and that will make me more independent and grow more as a person.
I'm currently taking Mandarin at my high school. Being in Beijing for four weeks(my plan for now at least) will be a language Emerson for me and that will be a great opportunity for my Mandarin to improve.
Since China has been around for such a long time it has a lot of history and traditions. For a student to go abroad it enlarges their cultural and knowledge span. A student can learn, read, and hear from a culture/place, but to live and experience it hands on beats any textbook. Its useful to experience things hands on because makes a person more open minded and a global perspective of the world.
In sum, what I hope to experience in a future AmeriSpan experience is expanding my knowledge and to enjoy a adventurous journey abroad.
