Kaylin Blount

Jishou, China
Princeton University ‘16
Major in English
Hometown: Richmond, VA
Kaylin is an English Major who is incredibly happy not to have to spend the next year stuck in a cubicle. She enjoys reading stories originally written for small children, making stuff up (otherwise known as writing fiction), and kicking people in the taekwondo ring. She is super excited to explore Jishou next year! Among other things, a few of her goals are: learning the local dialect, eating the spiciest food available, learning to roller skate on top of buildings, and conquering her arachnophobia.

Emma Bonga Bikele

Hong Kong, Hong Kong S.A.R., China
St. John’s University ‘13, Georgetown University ‘16
Major in Sociology
Hometown: Bronx, NY
I am a Congolese songbird studying Conflict Resolution in Washington, DC with a regional concentration on East Asia. In the event that Policy Analysis and Rhetoric do not work out as potential career avenues, a future as either a gospel singer or a Kpop star (in that order) constitute plans B and C. I am beyond excited to tussle with Cantonese and Mandarin while attempting to maintain my Korean. Here’s to an life changing year!

Devin Choudhury

Kathmandu, Nepal
Columbia University ‘15
Major in English Literature
Hometown: Cincinnati, OH
Devin likes palm trees and tuk-tuk rides. Devin likes that feeling at the end of the day where you finally scrape the lay- ers of dirt-encrusted sweat from your forearms.
“Why are you speaking in the 3rd person, Devin?”
“Well, the heat is finally getting to Devin, so he’s trying something new.”
“Sounds serious!”
“It isn’t.”
