Traveler Bio

大家好! Hey everyone! My name is Brian Garcia. My Chinese name is 高冰 (Gao Bing). I am 20 years old and traveled to China from August 2019 to February 2020. I am studying political science, economics, Asian studies, and public policy at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. I hope to be a diplomat or work in international human rights in the future. I love to travel, take photos, meet new people, learn different languages, and explore the world however I can. I can speak Mandarin Chinese, English (obviously), and Spanish, but I'm currently learning Swahili and French, too! I'm so excited to share my journey through China with you guys and can't wait to meet all of you!
