This is a double repost! Check out @afs_gps this week for a takeover from NSLI-Y Chinese alumna @jaime.cantwell ・・ Had a lot of fun doing some Instagram takeover posts for @afs_gps about my NSLI-Y program! There'll be a post each day from Monday to Friday of this week, so feel free check them out if you'd like🤗 #Repost @afs_gps ・・・ Happy Monday! We're doing another GPS Returnee Guest Feature! Meet Jaime who studied abroad in China! Follow us throughout the week to hear about her experience. Hi, I’m Jaime Cantwell! I went to Deyang, China on a NSLI-Y scholarship the summer of 2016—I studied Mandarin Chinese at Deyang Foreign Language School for six weeks while living with a host family. My AFS program was my first time going to China, but definitely not my last. After I returned to Seattle, I decided to continue my study abroad experience at NYU Shanghai, where I’m currently a freshman studying Economics and Chinese. I’ll be in China for three out of my four years of college, so by the time I graduate I hope to have a strong grasp of Mandarin Chinese and a comprehensive understanding of Chinese culture. -@jaime.cantwell #afs #afsusa #afsgps #afseffect #passpeaceforward #nsliy

#RepostSave @jayyy_mc ・・・ 元宵节快乐! (有一点晚。。。) The Chinese Lantern festival was this week! Love how Chinese holdiays are circled around food, the Chinese name for this holiday is just the name of a food . .. ... #redlantern #china #chineseholiday #red #nsliy #afs #chineselanternfestival #lanternfestival #lantern
Russian alumna @kiva.lanois shared some great photos in celebration of International Women's Day. Thank you for taking the time to show your appreciation for the women who helped make your exchange possible. #SheInspiresMe #womenshistorymonth ・・・ С 8 марта! С восьмым марта! Поздравляю с восьмым марта! С международным женским днём! Happy #internationalwomensday I took this photo from the window of my host family’s flat in the Brayevo district of Moscow. The message, reading «ЛЮБИМЫЕ ДАМЫ С 8 МАРТИ!!!» (“Beloved ladies, happy March 8th!!!”) is visible year-round, and is repainted every year in honor of this day. In Russia, International Women’s Day is an official public holiday, one in which the gender roles of household duties are often reversed so that women can enjoy a full day of rest. In honor of this truly global holiday I wanted to take a moment to celebrate the amazing women that I had the honor of meeting this summer in Moscow. And, a picture of Светлана Захарова (Svetlana Zakharova) that I took in the basement of the Bolshoi Theatre, конечно! Дорогие женщины: с 8 марта! Я скучаю по всем вам💗Спасибо тебе за все!🇷🇺 #nsliy #bbasi #с8марта #МГАХ

#RepostSave @daleyco ・・・ Another amazing day for @yesabroad and @nsliy students in #Morocco thanks to @darsihmad! After a 1 hour drive and a 3 hour hike, students were able to see the famous #fognets in person. They learned about the process used to develop and test the nets over years, as well as how the organization obtained funding (including through a @usaid grant as well as a @statedept alumni fund grant) worked to get commission buy-in and used the program to empower and educate local women and children. . . #exchangeourworld #nsliy #yesabroad #waterscarcity #fog #sustainabledevelopment #empoweringwomen #hiking #mountains #antiatlas
