Yes, I am Chinese citizen. But Im still allowed to go back to study. Tsinghua and My school have this program, so I can participate.
You may think I am nuts or stupid, why in the world I want to go back to my home city to pursue education after 4-5 years study abroad life.
Well, I left China to start high school by myself when I was only 16. I went to America all the way by myself with barly speaking English. My worldview was still in the process of formating. Therefore, I do not know how to appreicate my own culture well. And
I am really good at Chinese literacy, I don't want to waste my knowledge on that. Also, you may know that many Chinese college students are suffering cultural shocks after study abroad because they cannot fit in to the society where they grew up. Because of
the western mind has change their mentality. There is nothing right or wrong about it. But there is something people should be aware of how to adapt and adjust well.
I want to go back to Beijing to study abroad for a semester is not just simply to have a easy life. In fact, it might be harder. I want to learn and appreciate my own culture from another perspective. I want to get to know China from a foreigners' perspective
as well. Communication is the key, if people can understand each other to see things from other's perspective. It is going to help the development of the world a lot.
so, that's why. I hope it makes sense to you.
