My name is Ryan (欧瑞昂) and I am a sophomore at William and Mary. I am from Wilton, CT and a Chinese and accounting double major. On campus, I am a member of the rugby team (Our website), Kappa Delta Rho, and Someone You Know. I am very excited to be spending this summer in Beijing. I have been to China once before (That’s a picture of me in Hong Kong) and I loved every minute of it.
I became interested in Chinese and China when I was in high school. My school started offering Chinese classes my junior year and I decided to be adventurous and take them. After that initial exposure, I knew I wanted to take more classes in college and, once I came here, I decided I wanted to major in it. My dream job would be to combine both of my majors and be able do work with American companies in China. I hope one day I get the opportunity. I can’t wait to get to Beijing and take in all it has to offer.
