MEGAN Gillanders joined our projects in Whyville education centre
Please you us about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?
My favourite moment was the Saturday trips with Erica who worked for Whyville.
Which were the highlights of the lessons, cultural excursions and outdoor activities?
I loved the cultural excursions. My favourite moment was being crowded for photos at the military academy it was very funny.
How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?
I feel completely enlightened and like I have done something worthwhile with my summer.
What was the best thing about your experience in China?
The culture shock was a bit full on but my favourite part. I think its important to take yourself away from what you know and immerse yourself in something new. I can think of any better way of culturally immersing than moving to that country!
Would you recommend participating to a friend and if so why?
Definitely it was a once in a life time experience and really took me out of my comfort zone which i think is important to do. The cultural differences was a shock but very enlightening and educational.
