你好! My name is Teddy Parsons and I am a rising junior at Marin Academy in San Rafael, CA. I have been taking Mandarin for over 5 years now and I am very excited to finally experience China. Outside of school, I play competitive tennis year-round and I am playing trombone and trumpet in my local youth orchestra.

I have never been away from home for over a month, so I’m both nervous and excited for the experience.  Looking forward to meeting everybody!
