Participant Introduction

Hey guys,

My name is Rishi Bagaria and I’m very excited to be a part of this summers Yangtze River Program.

I am 17 years old and I a rising senior. I live in New Jersey and I attend The Lawrenceville School. In terms of sports, I run cross country and row crew. Apart from sports and leading clubs like Model UN and Debate, I am really interested in the stock market and am really proactive in terms of following the market.

Also, I have been studying Chinese for the past five years. In fact, I went to China last year through the NSLI program in order to study Chinese for six weeks. I am excited to be able to practice my Chinese skills during our trip with the local people we meet.

I am excited to meet you guys and experience this adventure with everyone.

See you soon!

Rishi Bagaria
