“At a very important point of myself, I have decided to go back to the Chinese side of myself and experience Chinese society and Chinese education. Tsinghua gave me the perfect opportunity to reconnect both of my sides,” said Katherin Thouvenin (France), a new graduate student of Tsinghua’s School of Journalism and Communication, who comes from a French and Chinese mixed culture family.
Katherin and her family often changed countries when she was in primary school due to her father’s job at the United Nations. Experiencing different kinds of culture since her childhood, she adapts quickly to the local environment, but she always remembered her roots in China. After pursuing her dual degree in France and South Korea, she has decided to study in China and the Global Business Journalism Program at Tsinghua became her first option. “This is the place where I really wanted to go: I feel that I belong here.”
During the summer school, Katherin attended a lecture by Prof. Li Daokui, a Tsinghua Professor, and was amazed by his professionalism. “You can really see that people at Tsinghua focus on how to create a better future for the new generation. You can see their passion for the subjects they are studying and teaching.”
Starting her new #TsinghuaLife, Katherin has a bucket list of what she wishes to accomplish. She hopes to enhance her communication knowledge and share stories with the public. “Perhaps I could be the MC of Tsinghua's International Student Gala Night. This would be a very big dream for me.”
