Evaluation Excerpt

Everybody at YingHua was very warm and welcoming. YingHua is a Chinese immersion school, and I wasn’t sure how the environment would be given that I don’t speak Mandarin. However, staff and students were very accommodating and I was able to pick up a few phrases by the end of my internship. I slowly got to know everybody as my internship went on, and I felt integrated and included with the staff and in the general professional and social life of the organization. -- Bianca Chan '22

The internship was eye-opening for me because I never imagined or expected to see so many families who were so committed to a Mandarin Immersion education for their children. Their teaching approaches and the way they carried the idea of "learning" was extraordinary. Their message and mission definitely promotes a way of learning that incorporates systemic social change as their goal is to grow lifelong learners which definitely was an attitude that was contagious for me as an intern as well.

 My main task was redesigning their website. I was able to see a tangible result at the end of the internship and that was very satisfying. It was appropriately challenging, especially with no experience in website design prior to the internship. —Irma Qavolli '21
