Meet your Session 2 Program Leader: James Holden

Hey y'all!  I'm James Holden and I'm one of the PLs for Nanjing Language and Culture, Session 2!  I grew up in North Carolina but now I teach geography and Chinese at an all-boys school in Louisville, Kentucky.  I was once a summer study abroad student myself in Kunming, Yunnan.  I also once taught English for a year at a high school in Changsha, Hunan.  I'm sure this comes as no surprise, but I am super excited to get to meet everyone and spend the next month in Nanjing!

High School Summer Abroad Session 2 Nanjing Program Leader- Ming Rui

Nimen hao! I am Ming Rui  who is a Chinese native and has been living in Pennsylvania for over twenty-five years. With two daughters in college and a photographer husband, we are very fortunate to be able to travel to many countries and experience different languages and cultures in person. Love to read, garden, and most of all, travel, I am looking forward to meeting you all to have adventures together. If you like to play Chinese Chess, I can be your playmate; if you like to do the Chinese calligraphy and brush painting, I would love to practice them with you; if you like to sing and dance, I can be your happy cheer leader...While it's hot, let's have some fun.
