"Simulation is the most interesting and exciting part during IAS: we pretend to be an important and different role in a organization or country. We come to work, discuss and argue together and experience a life as a leader, diplomat or journalist."

Thank you for helping me have a very fascinating and incredible journey at Yale. I have learned deeper knowledge from this tremendous program, I have obtained valuable experience from lectures and seminars, I have met many nice friends and I have mastered lots of practical skills from my capstone project and simulation. And the most important is that I have entered a new world where I have realized that I should try my best to keep going, keep learning to achieve my dream.

My favorite seminar was "Digital Footprints.” In this seminar, other students and I took pleasure in discussing about social media. The outstanding instructor created a dramatic class environment and held the process of seminar very well. We started a wonderful brainstorming session that broadened my horizons and made me gain a holistic view about social media as it is related to terrorism now. Indeed, I had a very good time.

Simulation is the most interesting and exciting part during IAS: we pretend to be an important and different role in a organization or country. We come to work, discuss and argue together and experience a life as a leader, diplomat or journalist. And the process is out of imagination because they even founded a new European community, which became crazy. At the same time, I enjoyed it a lot.

After this program, I will come back to China to finish my senior school and then take the college entrance exams to go to one of the best universities in China. Maybe in the future I will study abroad for further study.

My most unforgettable memory is the new friendship with these smart participants. I met lots of people who are from all over the world and thus I have learned much about different cultures like Brazil, Canada, England, Pakistan and so on. We have different perspectives about Grand Strategy, discuss about current issues and coordinate with each other to do an awesome job.

I am genuinely grateful and hope you would be proud of seeing what I have gotten from this program.
