Which graduate school were you attending when you participated in FPC?  

I was pursuing a Master's of Science degree at Columbia Journalism School, where I focused on journalistic computing and investigative reporting.

What are you doing now?  

Since graduating from Columbia Journalism School in the summer of 2016, I have been working at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, providing live and on-demand coverage of meetings and events held at the UN.

How did FPC impact you?  

FPC provided a unique opportunity for participants to delve into the history and the current landscape of U.S. foreign policy. The well-curated program included keynote speeches, panel discussions, off-site briefings and receptions, all of which were informative and interactive. Throughout the Colloquium, I met and had many memorable conversations with seasoned professionals, renowned scholars, and amazing peers. By the end of the program, I had gained a deeper understanding of various aspects concerning U.S. foreign policy, which aided my graduate studies and had a far-reaching impact on my career.

What was your favorite part of FPC?  

The Chinese Embassy reception and the off-site briefing at the National Security Council were two of my favorite parts of FPC.

Why should current Chinese graduate students attend FPC?   

FPC was an engaging, inspiring and thought-provoking experience that I would recommend to every Chinese graduate student who wishes to broaden their understanding of U.S. foreign policy. This opportunity to gain exclusive insights, mentors and friends is truly one of a kind.
