Leah Marty is a sophomore intending to double major in Chinese and Business at the College of William and Mary. She enjoys participating in Ballroom Dance Club, Metal Club, and working off campus at World Champion Tae Kwon Do. Originally from Virginia Beach, she began her study of Chinese at the Global Studies and World Languages Academy at Tallwood High School and has since been intrigued by the language and culture. During her senior year she went on a ten day exchange program with students from Harbin, China. The trip included a three days of touring in Beijing before heading to Harbin for a home stay. In the years since, she hasn’t stopped trying to find a way to go back. In this course, she hopes to gain a better understanding of Chinese culture through film.
