Hello, everybody.

I¡¯m Tang Tianyi from Beijing Foreign Studies University with a double major of Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language and English Literature. It may seem weird to study Chinese in a foreign studies university but my major is irreplaceable in helping to get a deeper insight into what Chinese culture, both ancient and contemporary, is like. It is irreplaceable in telling me how to introduce the Chinese culture in a way that can be easily accepted by foreigners. 

 I spent most of my time in Shanghai, born and bred, until three years ago when I came to Beijing for study. Life experience in both the south and north of China helps me get a full image of my motherland.      

Last year, I attended a summer school in Fairfax, Virginia, spending the whole month with my American peers. From stupid questions I asked like ¡°What is Netflix?¡± to deep discussions like what western and eastern culture are like, I realized that there was still a lot more to know about each other.

Therefore, I feel very honored to be one of the three Chinese delegates of ¡°From University to the World¡± to deepen the communications between young people from China and US. I am also excited to have the opportunity to be off to NYC. Just like Alicia Keys and Jay-Z once song, ¡°New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of ¡°, New York, I think, is where as if dreams can turn into realities. I am really looking forward to talk to my American peers in the DREAMS-come-true city.
