Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The greatest impact was from my varsity [sports team], and from the Bryn Mawr Exhibition Series and Bryn Mawr Buddies. I was part of the varsity sports team in China in high school so I joined here. The first and second year wasn’t too good because they didn’t have a regular training system or a regularly recruited coach. It really introduced me to a freestyle training that shifted my interest in the sport. I attended the weekly training but cultivate my other sports interests outside. I didn’t totally delegate my time to the sport like I didn’t in high school. It [encouraged] me to learn table tennis as well.
