9781449050603: China Changing In My Eyes: People, Schools and Landscapes

China Changing In My Eyes: People, Schools and Landscapes is written from the unique perspective of a high school student, Sonia M Chen. Sonia visited China six times between 1996 and 2007. Her observations, through the use of interviews and travel to places within China, were well documented. Sonia portrayed the life journeys of a group of ordinary Chinese people, including her family and acquaintances, which range in age from five to 95, bear the marks of remarkable changes in China for the past 100 years, especially over the past three decades. She acutely captures distinct differences in school systems and educational approaches between both countries, using her own experiences in the US and her keen observations in China. She also vividly describes the landscapes that she visited, like the Yuanmingyuan, the Three Gorges of Yangtze River, the Giant Panda Reserve and Institute, or southwestern hilly city, Chongqing, which signaled China's physical transformation and rapid modernization. Overall, from her stories, readers can see a window of China and realize how China is becoming a dynamic, modern country where change and perseverance exist side by side.

About the Author:

Sonia M Chen, a senior at Suncoast Community High School in Riviera Beach, Florida, was born and raised in America, but her heritage traces directly back to China. She loves both countries sincerely and has a deep desire to promote a mutual understanding between the two countries and two cultures. China Changing In My Eyes: People, Schools and Landscapes is her second book that shares her fascinating and incomparable experiences in China to an American and world audience. Her first book, on the other hand, introduces her own childhood journey in America to a Chinese audience about learning and growing up in America. The book, in both English and Chinese, is entitled, "An Incredible Childhood Journey: The Educational Experience of an American-Chinese Girl". Sonia has been fond of reading and writing ever since she was a child and has always learned with deep interest and powerful curiosity. Her journal followed her along the way as she traveled to numerous states in the US, as well as to other countries such as Spain, Canada, and China. Currently, she is the president of the National Honor Society, the first-vice president of the Student Government Association, and the president of the Historical Society of her school. She is an active member of the school's Varsity Girl's Lacrosse Team. She has actively participated in the Palm Beach County Youth Court Program and has played violin at a local orchestra for almost 10 years. Her hobbies include swimming, cooking, reading, and watching various professional sports.
