Hi! My name is Lance Cádiz, I am a senior in The Chinese Language Flagship Program here on campus. Additionally, I am cross-enrolled at UC Berkeley as an Air Force cadet, commissioning in the Summer of 2020 after completing a Capstone Year abroad in Beijing, China.
I’ve had the opportunity to study abroad through SF State Exchange and Flagship Summer programs three times. Most recently, I spent 6 months in Taiwan attending two different programs in the Spring and Summer of 2018. Previously, I studied in Shanghai, China for two months in the Summer of 2017. I was awarded multiple scholarships in order to fund these study abroad sessions and am happy to share any knowledge I have on the application processes. I strongly believe that taking advantage of the opportunity to study abroad will help you develop into a more well-rounded individual and make you more knowledgeable & competitive than your peers.
