My past year at the University of Chicago has been thrilling. Over the summer, I was granted the opportunity to travel to China. I stayed in Chengdu and Beijing for a month and worked as the Director-General of a camp dedicated to teaching middle and high school students about Model UN and the skills involved. Once returning home, I worked as a news intern for the MV Times. Back at school, I have continued to pursue a degree in Economics and a minor in History. This quarter, I was able to take a class called the Economics of Crime, taught by Steven Levitt, author of Freakonomics. It was the most interesting and engaging class I have taken. With the help and encouragement of MVYouth, I have been given so many wonderful travel and learning experiences. I cannot wait to see what the next year has in store!
