I am Heqing/Amy Yin, a senior at Moorestown Friends School interested in education studies.
This project is created because of my experiences trying to navigate myself in an American high school after I transferred from a traditional test-oriented Chinese school in my sophomore year. My hometown was Kunming, a city in China without much educational resources, where studying abroad was not a popular trend. Before studying abroad, I could not learn English from foreign teachers or participate in various extracurricular activities at my school. I encountered a lot of challenges when I first came to the United States and understand how hard the transition process could be for international high school students who are not fully prepared for this journey. Therefore, I want to provide learning resources for students with similar backgrounds so that they can overcome these challenges more easily.
