Each week, we ask one of our new fun-loving exchange students to share a little about themselves and the most revealing question of all, what’s in your backpack?

This week, Jade Hsiao, from Taipei, Taiwan, gives us a peek into her sporty, red, white and navy colored backpack:

What school are you on exchange with and how long will you be at Thunderbird?  

 I am studying in Soochow University for Dual Degree program, and will graduate from here in August 2014.

What is your favorite part of Thunderbird so far?

Most of students here are so friendly! The majority here are international students, so people know I am facing the situation what they had as well when they have just arrived here. Therefore, they are pretty willing to help each other.

 What are you hoping to do when you leave Thunderbird and graduate?

Having more open mind to deal with people from other countries not only for work but also for my personal horizons.

What are the three most interesting things in your backpack?

1. Amulet, which my mom gave me when I was 14 years old.

2. Straighten roll, to make my natural curl-hair become smooth.

3. Cookies, because I feel hungry in the class easily!
