An American Kid in Beijing

Jennifer Myers, Senior Concord High School

Want to know what China is like? Just ask Concord High senior Jennifer Myers. She was one of twenty recipients of a Global Citizen Scholarship from Education First (EF), an educational tours program. The scholarship, in the form of a free trip to China, rewards students, who show dedication to helping others overcome cultural barriers. Myers, now seventeen, toured Beijing, Shanghai, and Hangzhou and saw everything from the Great Wall to the Forbidden City. — Victoria Uwumarogie
