I’m glad to introduce a new member to the newspaper team. Her name is Monica Liang. She is a boarding student from Beijing, China. She is a new student to Brook Hill School this year and she is enjoying her first experience. She likes to spend time with the boarding students because of the bond they share, which is created because they are all away from family.
China is very different from America so sometimes Monica has a hard time adapting. The education system is different. In China, students are divided by grades with only one teacher. That one teacher the students all the subjects. Monica also thinks that the teachers in China are more formal than the teachers here.
Her favorite activities are listening to music and shopping. Monica’s first impression when arriving in Texas was that there were a lot of trees and trucks. Her expectation for newspaper is to improve her skills in writing.
Welcome Monica to the staff and look forward to reading her articles!
