Jennifer Vernon, a student from the Chengdu American Center for Study Abroad, has been a community coordinator in midtown Chengdu for weeks.
Another part of her 3-month-long internship here is to help local residents know more about things outside China. Just days before, she delivered a lecture on animals in Colombia. "Seeing so many people present at the lecture, I felt a sense of achievement," Jennifer said.
Coming to study in China was not an easy decision for Jennifer, since the seniors of her family was not in favor of her going to the remote and mysterious China before she set off on the journey. "Many of the Americans, including my parents and grandparents, still share a stereotyped opinion that China is an under-developed and unsafe country, where I might place myself in dangerous situations," said Jennifer, "But since I stepped on the land Chengdu, all the preconceived ideas have been shaken off." She is impressed by the city's yummy food, splendid culture and picturesque scenery. "I didn't expect that Chengdu is such a metropolitan city," she added.
Now Jennifer has a boyfriend in Chengdu. "We met at the People's Park of Chengdu," said Jennifer, "I've harvested a lot here and we are planning to explore more in China."
