About Me


(n) One who admires China, its people, or its culture.


My name is Rachel and I hold a master’s degree in Chinese Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, with a major in China and International Politics. For my bachelor’s degree, I attended Connecticut College from 2007-2011 and graduated with a double major in East Asian Studies and History. I studied abroad in the Fall of 2010 in Xi’an, China. I’ve studied Mandarin for five years, and it’s been a long but fun journey!

I grew up in Kathmandu, Nepal and was lucky enough to travel to China a few times in middle and high school. My life experiences have fostered within me a love of Asia, especially China. This blog is where I share anything and everything about China that strikes my fancy.

On this blog, I try to display a wide variety of perspectives on different topics related to China. Please note that this means I occasionally re-post items that do not necessarily reflect my personal opinion.
