Westborough student teaches English in rural China

Westborough – Westborough High School student Melissa Zhang spent last summer at a rural school in China, teaching English to the local children. They ended up teaching her some important lessons as well. Here is her firsthand account: People say that the world is getting smaller. Technology is constantly changing and reshaping our society. I do agree with these statements, but I spent my summer in a very different place on the opposite side of the world, where technology is almost a foreign language. Here, I learned to be strong in times of adversity and enthusiastically explore new cultures. Haojiping Ethnic School is a rural school in Hunan Province, deep in the mountains of China. United Planet, the volunteer organization that brought me there, has helped thousands of volunteers go to more than 40 different countries. I heard about the program from Michelle Cheng, a fellow Westborough resident. We decided to go together and ended up being the only volunteers from Massachusetts. I spent my summer in rural China teaching English to Chinese children and it was one of the best choices I'se ever made.
