I’m Baneet Braich, the summer student intern at the Abbotsford News.
I will be sharing my adventures in China with you. I attend Abbotsford Senior Secondary School and was selected to attend the BIEE (Beijing International Education Exchange) Summer Camp from July 13 to 23 with my peer Karene Luu and students from across the globe, including Russia, Germany, Spain, New Zealand, India, Pakistan and more.
Many of us do not know much about China. With this opportunity, I will be sharing as much as I can about Chinese culture and famous sites such as the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, famous temples, and the city life in Beijing as well.
Coming here, I have realized this camp is primarily for teaching Chinese culture and is different from what I expected. There are media everywhere, as the camp is being broadcast live everyday on Chinese networks.
Overall, I can say It has been a large culture shock arriving in China. I miss the food in Canada but I’m looking forward to sharing the experience here with everyone back home.
Stay tuned to abbynews.com for upcoming adventures.
