To the Chinese Workforce:
I have never worked so hard with such tight deadlines in my life. Because of you, I have a different standard for working when I come back to America. I am not at all saying that Americans are lazy, I am just saying that we do not work as hard/much nor get paid as little.
To the other foreigners in China:
Thank you for making the culture shock a bit easier. I have such a sense of joy being around people of different nationalities. I have gained culture from you all as well. Just to name a few of my favorites, Bahar (Turkey), Racheal (England) , Micheal (American), Vitaly (Ukraininan and I hate you still haha), Winnie (Chinese), Mitch (Austrailian), Matt (English), Victor (Spanish) and AnnaBelle (Dutch) these plus the many more that I have met and became the best of friends the same night.
This program has changed my life forever. I feel that I finally have the confidence, experience and project backing to secure the job of my dreams. It is so funny how I came across this opportunity but I am so happy that I did. This was such a rewarding experience. I am proud to say that I am an international designer, and that is a thanks to you and your wonderful program.
There is no place on Earth like you. I’ve missed you so.
