Meet Our Student Assistant Skye

Skye at her Internship Office in China.

Hi! My name is Skye and I am a Chinese Major, Linguistics and Pacific Asian Studies Minor in the Chinese Language Flagship Program. As part of the program, I studied abroad in an intensive summer language program in Taiwan at National Taiwan University with financial support from the Gilman Scholarship and the Flagship program. I then completed two subsequent internships in Taiwan, where I wrote columns and translated news articles in rural Yilan for the YICFF News Office. I have worked at OIP as a Student Assistant since winter of 2014 and took a yearlong break starting in spring of 2017 so as to complete my Flagship capstone year in Mainland China supported again by Flagship funding, as well as the Freeman Asia Scholarship. In addition to studying at Nanjing University, I completed a six-month full time internship as a Program Assistant/Advisor at the Nanjing University Chinese Language Flagship Center. I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese and have a lot of great things to put on my resume thanks to study abroad! In the future I hope to go into International Education as a Language Program Coordinator or Study Abroad Advisor. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about study abroad, applying to scholarships, or studying/interning specifically in China or Taiwan!
