Lynn Shi - China

Lynn Shi is from Shanghai, China. Lynn has been at GRCC for one year. She started as an Academic Transfer student in June 2011. She lives in Campus Corner Apartments and has roommates from different countries. "CCA is a great way to make friends. We live together, cook together and give each other encouragement when we need it."

"Green River has helped me to develop good study habits. I have learned how to manage my classes and social life. This is good because I have met so many friends from all over the world - not only American and Asian students, but also African, Turkish, German and Swedish. I am a lot more open now - not so shy."

Lynn is very active on campus, she not only works as a marketing Assistant in the International Programs Office and an Economics Tutor, she is also a member of Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for two-year colleges. One of her greatest GRCC memories to date, was participating in an 8-day business experience trip to Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City. This trip was organized in conjunction with Phi Theta Kappa and the International Scholar Laureate Program (ISLP). The students got a great introduction to the world of business, both profit and non-profit, and met entreprenuers including the founders of foursquare.

Lynn's goal is to major in communications and minor in economics. She would like to transfer to either the University of Washington, NYU, Boston University or University of Michigan in the fall.
