Team FEA is running in the Cherry Blossom 10-mile run, raising money for FEA's study abroad scholarships! Help me reach my goal!
I'm running in the Cherry Blossom 10-mile run to help support students who might not otherwise have the chance to study abroad. My own study abroad experience in China in 2008 was transformational in ways that I cannot fully express. I was able to become fluent in Chinese during the 6 months that I was there; I used the time to explore my Chinese heritage and Chinese identity; and most importantly of all, I made lasting friendships that I still hold very dear to my heart. Please consider donating to give other students the chance to study abroad and act as diplomats for us around the world.
