Why did you decide to become involved with the Chinese Bridge Project?: 
I had previously participated in the Lehigh in Shanghai program the summer before my sophomore year and developed an affinity for Chinese culture and the countless contrasts it provided when compared to western modes of thought and approaches to everyday life. I also became interested in traditional Chinese design and later decided to study architecture, so when I heard about the Chinese Bridge Project it immediately resonated with me.
