Chopsticks and Travel Shoes

Hi, I'm glad you stopped by.

My name is Lizbeth. Grab a panda and join me as I leave Las Vegas in pursuit of adventure in China's tea houses, classrooms, dirt roads, and industrial cities. I shoot with a Nikon D3100 and am sharing my journey through it's lens.

Share with me, talk to me, ask me: Feel free to leave any questions or thoughts in the ask box below.

UNLV International Programs

So I’m running the social media platforms for the Office of International Programs at UNLV. I’ve published my first post on facebook this morning and look forward to bringing you scholarship information, travel tips, and program updates for all your study abroad needs.

If you have any interest in travel as an undergrad or perhaps in research abroad as a graduate student, we’re your go-to office.

I welcome you to join the travel conversation. :D

Do You Want to be Pan Pals?!

好久不见,Tumblr!
我现在住了在美国内华达拉斯维加斯。去年我住了在四川。我找中国的笔友。如果你要写信,我们可以写中文还是英文。

好不好?:D

In case any of my grammar is wrong, here’s my message in English:

Long time no see, Tumblr!

I now live in the United States in Las Vegas, Nevada. Last year I lived in Sichuan. I am looking for a pen pal in China. If you want to write, we can write in Chinese or English.

What do you think?

I like writing letters to people! I also think writing would help me practice Chinese (and maybe help you in someway too)! If anyone is at all interested, let me in know in a reply or message. 

谢谢,
艾鹂 (中文名字)
Liz (英文名字)

Hyobin's 4,000+ Miles for Cancer

My amazing friend Hyo is spending her summer biking across America, over 4,000 miles from Baltimore to San Diego, in order to raise money and awareness for cancer. Hers is a truly inspirational story of passion, action, and strength. Hyo is a great example of what a community ally looks like. 

The challenge of biking across the Unites States also comes with the task of raising $5,000. If you are in any way able to help her get just a little further in her journey, I encourage you to donate to her cause through the link. If you can’t, you can still follow her journey and training leading up to her epic ride this summer.

Maybe it&#8217;s because Nevada ranks 50th in education in the US, maybe it&#8217;s because Las Vegas is the worst city for K - 12 education in the country, but being back has really made me miss the discipline Chinese students have. Of course China&#8217;s school system has its own slew of attention worthy problems, but their students definitely study harder than almost any kid I&#8217;ve met in this state.

Restoring Faith In Humanity of the Day: CEOs take a lot of flak for their exorbitant salaries and bonuses, but Yang Yuanqing just became quite a bit more popular with about 10,000 of his fellow employees. Yuanqing, the head honcho of PC maker Lenovo, dispersed his $3 million bonus to all his employees. The distribution averages out to roughly $314 per employee — almost an average month’s salary for factory workers in China.

yay!

Hello, we saw you are studying abroad! We are StudentsGoneGlobal[.]com, a cool new blogging platform for the study abroad and student community.
