  作者陈汐宜是美国驻华大使馆的“e-实习生”(e-intern)--Virtual Student Foreign Service

  我叫陈汐宜。 我就读于位于新泽西州的普林斯顿大学,目前读大学三年级。

  我的父亲来自广西农村,母亲来自东北长春市。我的父母于上个世纪的八十年代末期移民美国。虽然我是在新泽西州出生的,但在我上幼儿园前回长春住了十个月,因此学了一口东北话。回到美国后,我们搬到了南加州。我和我弟弟陈远帆就读于当地的私立学校。2005年,我和我弟弟一起,每年暑假我们都会回到父亲的家乡——广西平南县,为当地的中学生开办了一个英语夏令营。我们每年还动员好几个我们的美国同学一起去中国,为夏令营授课。该夏令营在今年的夏天还在继续举办。

  在普林斯顿,我的专业是国际关系和公共政策,特别侧重学习中美环保合作方面的问题。 在课外,我是我们学校的亚洲学生组织的主席、亚洲学生辅导项目的协调官、常春藤盟校亚洲学生组织联合会的主任和中国学生总会的领导成员。除了积极投身到亚洲学生的社团活动以外,我还为《普大日报》和《普大校友杂志》当记者,为我的女生联谊会Kappa Alpha Theta当“pledge mom,”基本上是当高一学生的帮教辅导员。在体育方面,我参加了普大的滑雪滑板俱乐部。

  今年夏天,我在华盛顿的一个非政府组织当实习生。该组织叫中国环保国际基金会。 同时也在一家专注于政治议题的、名为We Act Radio的广播电台实习。我本来对记者或者环保事业颇感兴趣,但是,从我实习的经验,我意识到我的真正的爱好是政治。

  我很高兴我有这个机会为美国大使馆写这个关于美国大学生的生活的博客。我希望我能描述我们校园的包含喜怒哀乐的缤纷生活。

  My name is Sarah Xiyi Chen, and I am a junior at Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey.

  My father is from rural Guangxi, my mother from Changchun in Dongbei Province. Though I was born in New Jersey, I lived in China when I was very young, where I learned how to speak like a Changchun native! After leaving China, I lived in Arcadia, California, where I attended a private high school along with my younger brother, Andy. In 2005, I started an English summer program in the high school my father attended in the tiny town of Pingnan, Guangxi, and my family has continued that program to this day.

  At Princeton, I am studying Chinese environmental policy in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, which is an amazing undergraduate program and graduate school for public policy. Outside of class, I am heavily involved with Asian student life—I am the president of the Asian American Students Association, program coordinator of the Asian American Mentoring Program, executive chair of the Ivy League Asian American Conference, and a member of the Chinese Students Association general board. In addition, I write for our campus daily newspaper and the Princeton Alumni Weekly, and I am the “pledge mom” for my sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta and an officer on the club ski and snowboard team.

  This summer, I interned in Washington, D.C. with an organization called the International Fund for China’s Environment and with a new progressive radio station, We Act Radio WPWC 1480 AM. While I originally hoped to pursue environmental work or journalism, my internships taught me that I probably will not do either. Now, I’m hoping to go into government service.

  I am looking forward to blogging for the Embassy this year, and I hope to give you a better sense of my life as an American university student, complete with all of the fun, stress, and incredible excitement that defines these fo
