Sport gives you the incredible opportunity to expand your friendship groups and to get to know some fantastic people from all over the world. Here is my friend Judit @yudi_hongstar from Spain. We were competitors in the pool but now are friends! Good luck Judit, I will be following and cheering you on! Hope we get to meet again some day! #swimmers #friends #friendsbeforecompetitors #paralympics #paraswimmersrule🏊 #crosscultures #sportbringsustogether

A group of scholars from @kyotouniversity recently participated in an #AFLSP seminar led by Professor ZHAO Liang. WAN Ziyan(@ziyan.miya), a scholar from the 2017 cohort, shared about her recent research on air pollution in China and Japan, her visit to Facebook’s Tokyo office, and her internship at a local startup, Wantedly, where she was involved in analyzing overseas businesses. HSU Po-Wei, also from the 2017 cohort, presented his seven-month research on the behavioral patterns of ant crickets in Taiwan, Malaysia, and Indonesia. “The seminar was a good opportunity for me to reflect on and share my experiences in Japan over the past six months. I especially appreciate the advice I received from the professor, which encourages me to keep improving ahead of the next seminar,” says Ziyan.
A big thank you to Kyoto University’s faculty for their time and support, and to attending scholars for their participation and hard work!

Small groups of #AFLSP Scholars from @yenchingacademy of Peking University (@pku1898) recently embarked on field trips to Hunan, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Fujian, and Hong Kong to further explore China’s transition in a global context.
HUANG Xinjie chose to visit a rural primary school in Chongqing and met with local “left-behind children” whose parents have left their village to work in cities. “Standing in front of a packed classroom of sixty giddy boys and girls, we had no choice but to confront our privilege. We realized that the valuable opportunity to study at one of China’s most renowned universities may only be a pipe dream for many of these kids, but for us, it had become something that we took for granted,” he says. “There are more needs to be addressed and policies to be implemented to improve the lives and education of these kids.” We hope all of our scholars enjoyed their trips and were able to broaden their perspectives!

10 #AFLSP Scholars from Zhejiang University (#ZJU) took a three-day trip to Xi’an recently, where they experienced the rich local culture and learned about the past and present role of the local government and its initiatives. Led by ZJU professors, scholars engaged in discussions with professors from Xi’an Jiao Tong University, visited the China (Shaanxi) Pilot Free Trade Zone (FTZ), toured night markets, and met with local residents. On one of the highlights of the trip, AFLSP Scholar Artyem Tsaturyan (@tartyem) says, “The FTZ is a huge government-endorsed program designed to facilitate economic and cultural cooperation at home and abroad. I look forward to seeing it sharpen Shaanxi’s competitive edge in the global business market.”
Watch a video recap of the trip created by Artyom here: https://youtu.be/iFZsq-v-qZg

@hayjono brought an American Press up to enjoy the coffee brewing competition at the Seattle Specialty Coffee Expo, while enjoying a tea cocktail from new friends at @rishitea. They gave us a whole giant bag of their loose leaf tea for us to demo...and it’s true, the American Press also brews a mean cup of saffron tea!⠀

For Taiwanese student TSAI You-shan (@you.shan.tsai), an #AFLSP Scholar from @kyotouniversity, one of her biggest takeaways from her study abroad experience is a deeper appreciation for the many cultures in Asia. “The AFLSP provided me with opportunities to interact with like-minded scholars from many Asian countries. I believe that together, we can develop innovative and impactful ideas that will benefit Asia as a whole,” she says.
Currently researching interactions between plants and microbes, You-shan hopes to develop organic hydroponics (a soilless method of growing plants using nutrient solutions) by screening useful microbes from soil to promote plant growth. “I believe this system of farming will reduce the consumption of chemical fertilizers and make the agricultural industry more sustainable," she says.
After graduation, You-shan, who is fluent in Chinese, English, and Japanese, plans to work in trans-regional agriculture in Japan to help boost green technology in Asia and beyond.

This is an airplane which was crashed on purpose near Mexicali, Mexico to see how passengers were affected. A group of pilots parachuted out right before landing. Test dummies were used to access damage to passengers. The entire documentary can be seen in full on YouTube. Look up tail number XB-MNP

Many people ask me.. "Isn't it hard to be married to someone from another culture?"🤔
My answer is always the same.. It depends on the relationship and the understanding and dynamics.
For us, I think it was a blessing in disguise. I can't take for granted that we would be similar in our life views or decisions, because I know how different we were raised in so many ways. So, when we differ, it does not catch me by surprise. We talk it out and we form our own little home with our own little culture. And in a way, isn't that what marriage teaches us in any case? To consider and to trust and to become like one. 👫💗 #crosscultures #marriage #justathought #hesakeeper #grateful #grace
