Mariya Taberko used her China Center Scholarship during her intensive language tudy in Beijing.

Here is a taste of Mariya's experience in her own words:

"This trip did more for me than just improve my Chinese skills. Although that was a huge benefit of living in China, I think that greater still was the increase in my confidence and independence as a result of study abroad. I am grateful for the opportunity to not only interact with Chinese people and understand their culture more deeply, but to be able to foster friendships with people that I may never have met had I not lived in Beijing. I firmly believe that spending a semester in China was the best decision of my college experience thus far,­ and I would not exchange that time for anything."
