Testimonial from a participant

"It has always been a dream of mine to go to China. So, when the opportunity presented itself with UNC-Chapel Hill, I was elated.

I can easily say that it was the best 23 days of my life and a time I will never forget. The faculty, other members of the trip, as well as the incredible people I met in China have inspired and motivated me more than I could have ever imagined. The UNC 2009 trip to China validated my hopes and dreams of potentially working and living in China, and provided me with invaluable international connections. I honestly could not be more grateful to UNC for providing a wonderful trip to such a beautiful country."
