I will graduate from the College of William & Mary in May 2013 with a double major in Chinese and Finance with a concentration in Entrepreneurship. I gained extensive linguistic and cultural understanding during the William & Mary summer program at Tsinghua University in Beijing in 2011. My experience in the capital and elsewhere within the country was a life-altering experience that I will always be grateful for. Upon graduation I will be working for a technology and business strategy company in Charlotte, NC that builds high growth businesses nationwide. I expect to incorporate my knowledge of Chinese in my career in the near future. Studying Chinese has dramatically augmented my experience at the College and I am extremely grateful for the wonderful department members who have guided my studies and have been personally invested in my success at the College and beyond.
