Lauren's Journey to China

Current Location

Hong Kong SAR, China

Come with me on my journey to Hong Kong, a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of China! While in Hong Kong, we'll be surrounded by so much food, culture and adventure... I can't wait!


Living far from the city makes life a bit different but really nice! In the New Territories, nature feels like a scene out of Jurrassic Park.


Big parts of going abroad on the Fulbright scholarship are to make connections and learn about the local culture. Everyone has been so kind and willing to help with these endeavors in Hong Kong!

Field Notes

Hong Kong has mastered the mix of urban hustle and bustle with the wild forests of the New Territories. Though there's not a lot of greenery found in Central, there are always glimpses of nature!


Recently, I went to a Cultural Showcase at my university promoting diversity! Students set up booths to showcase their culture and the country they come from with a fashion show (and snacks)!
