Hello everyone! My name is Melissa and I’m a student at USF about to board my first flight out of the country to Beijing. I was awarded the Genshaft/Greenbaum Passport Scholarship to study on the Chinese Learning in the Culture – Tier 1 study abroad program. I’m majoring in International Business, and this is but the start of a very long journey in my life, aside from the immediate long journey via plane. In a mixture of nerves, excitement and most of all… Anticipation! Looking forward to all the new places, people and good food! Until then… 再见!
