After reading the reflections of previous Microcampus attendees, there are many valid suggestions that I will follow. Generally speaking, not procrastinating and finishing the work on time is essential to make the Microcampus trip easier for us. Also, communicating to the locals may prove harder than expected, as we have been living in an international bubble for most of our lives. Real life communication with people of different cultures, values, and habits will really push at our interaction skills.

I have recently just completed Phase 0 of the preparation for the Inquiry Project, for which we have looked through a long list of projects and chosen one in particular to study. I will be investigating in Project/Business management. In Phase 1, we will be asking questions about our topic, and using our prior knowledge to acquire more information on our projects.

In Phase 3 research, there were three main parts that I focused on, and below are the keywords I used to gather information.

About This Learner

My name is Alexis Y., and I am 13 years old. I was born in Paris, France, and returned to China with my parents when I turned 6. My favorite sport is basketball, and I found a passion for debate since 6th grade when I joined MUN. Our Phenomena group has left XiZhou and is back in Shanghai. The Microcampus Experience has helped me explore "me" and find out more about the history of XiZhou and its people. Over the course of this trip, I have become friends with 40, 50, and 60 year-old adults. I have made bonds with the rest of my peers, some of which I had not even talked to before. I have grown so much in just one month, and I am sure that the good habits that I have adopted on this trip will stay with me forever.
