"Wow, what an experience! I have never been to such a place, so totally opposite and yet exactly the same. China's people, at least the youth of the nation, have the desire and drive to change their country by using their methods, i.e. guanxi. I am so excited to have had the chance to see and visit a wonderful country and its people and I can't wait until the next time I go."

-Jennifer Smith, 2006 Participant
