I am an exchange student from Fujian, China. I am currently a junior marketing major. I want to get involved with the program because I believe the minority inclusion problem is an important issue that needs to be acknowledged globally. I can only exchange one semester at Temple University, so I think the 10-10-10 Project is a good chance for me to experience the American culture and local people’s life.
