Video Subject & Artist Statement (this may be publicly posted):
My friend Melissa and I made this video to talk about just two small example of how China has affected our lives. Melissa focused on her plans to get her degree in international relations and hospitality and how China has heavily influenced that decision. I focused on a service trip I went on this summer that made me realize some eye-opening differences between American and Chinese society that inspired me to return and study abroad in China. We concluded with a short musical parody embracing our mutual feelings that China is indeed an "open door" for the future.
