Tokyo, Japan
Princeton University ‘18
Major in Physics

Jensen Lo enjoys experiencing the great outdoors and climbing up mountains in boat shoes. Unlike most of the other PiA fellows, he is still a sophomore, and doesn’t really know how real life is supposed to work. He’s ready to spend another wonderful and adventurous summer in Japan.

Jose Lopez

Jishou, China
Princeton ‘16
Major in Psychology.
Hometown: Chapel Hill, NC

Jose is 50% Polish, 50% Guatemalan, and 100% excited to graduate and become sort of an adult. His impressions of China come from looking at cartoon dragons in The Economist and sobbing to the Tong Hua music video, which is to say, he has a lot to learn. He has survived some seriously spicy dishes in Mexico and Guatemala, but not without a little more sobbing. He is really looking forward to helping his students understand English, America, Justin Bieber, and other important things in the world.

Tony Louthan

Wuhan, China

Princeton University ‘15

Tony’s a great guy - real 2nd Year Fellow material. After a year in Shihezi, you’ll find him now in Wuhan, playing some soccer with his tie-gemenr. Though he will miss his Shihezi crew, Tony eagerly looks forward to Wuhan. He plans on growing out his mustache even further, playing majiang, and making a friend or two along the way.

Max Marshall

Hanoi, Vietnam
Columbia University ‘16
Major in Philosophy
Hometown: Dallas, TX
 
For the last three years of his life, Max Marshall had an unmistakable middle-part haircut. It wasn’t particularly lush, but it changed hues with the seasons. Now, like his lifestyle, Max’s hair part is slightly left of center. He’s stoked to purchase a dirt bike and copy edit for the official state news service of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

Libby McCarthy

Yangon, Myanmar
Middlebury College ‘13
Major in International Studies - East Asia/Political Science

There once was a gal named Lib,
who owned a wee cat Mr. Tibs,
Tibby went missing,
so she packed up her things,
And said Myanmar, I like the cut of your jib!

Amalya Megerman

Shihezi, China
Princeton University ‘16
Major: Anthropology, Visual Arts, Chinese
Hometown: Teaneck, NJ

After developing Beijing cough in 2013, acquiring a taste for baijiu and fending off foreign lovers during Jishou Summer of Service 2014, and finding the need to learn Chinese for “anesthesia” (mázuì, should you find need for it too) when she returned to Jishou in 2015 (“No. It will be quick,” the good doctor said), she’s excited for what awaits her in Shihezi. Her parents say she was born in an egg roll factory, so she’s also hoping to trek through China until she is reunited with her true home. Companions welcome.

Shanghai, China
Bates College ‘15

After dining his way from the shores of Maine to the streets of China, Pete is excited to see what Shanghai has on the menu- both literally and figuratively. Pete’s entering his 2nd Year at YK Pao, but he still keeps in humble. If you’re in Shanghai, say Hi!
