Hi, I’m Jaime! I’m a New York University Shanghai student from the Seattle area. In 2016, I received a NSLI-Y (National Security Language Initiative for Youth) scholarship to study Chinese in Deyang, China for 6 weeks, which led to the creation of this blog. Since then, I’ve also used this as a space to document my time in the TUSA (Taiwan-US Sister Relations Alliance) program in Tainan, Taiwan, my journey as a student at NYU Shanghai, and hopefully many more adventures to come in the future. If you have questions about NSLI-Y, TUSA, NYU Shanghai, or anything in between, feel free to contact me through the Contact page of this blog.
I will be participating in the CLS Indonesian 2020 Virtual Institute this fall, and I am also a finalist for the Boren Scholarship for the spring to attend the International Chinese Language Program at National Taiwan University. Feel free to check out this article on the NYU Shanghai news page for more details!
