The convention from 2019 was somewhat like last year; however, some parts were drastically different. First for the first round, most American students paired up with Chinese students for a collaborative project. This was not in last years convention. The collaboration allowed us to experience new people from across the globe starting from the first round. Then throughout the time after the first round, many activities that made us open up to our second round partners such as games so when the second round starts we would be able to better communicate and participate in the project. During the second project, it was the same as last year, but many students had a better experience with the activities beforehand. Finally, the third round was also the same as last year but was still a lot of fun.

The leadership convention was very interesting. It was the first time I experienced this type of event. The convention was really short. We arrived relatively early at night so the first there was no one in the dorm. I slept alone which was kinda weird since I thought there would be people. I was lucky that the translators and volunteers were there to assist me or else I would be so lost. There were shower cards which was very interesting since I never knew that exist. Then, It was the "first day" we had to get the green shirts/uniforms. After that I just went back to the dorm and fell asleep. I woke up because the teacher wanted to meet up. After meeting up, I forgot completely what happens. I think my roommates arrived, which I thought was great. The first round was pretty scary since it was me and my partner going up to a large stage. I realized that some of the people who asked questions were mean they asked were should I implement the treatment in china. I am like what the heck, I don't even know cities in china come on. Then came round two, it was with my roommates and others in one group. I think it was group 49. We had lots of fun. Then we had a project to do in one day, which was hard. Next thing we know it is that we had problems with transferring the project then we have finally got it done. I skipped the third round. The third round was honestly not hard. Finally, we were done so we can now tour. I would also like to thank all the teachers, friends, translators and volunteers for treaty me with care. The teachers really supported all of us with their positivity although some of us are really naughty (me).

Teaching in Anhui was very fun. I made a lot of new friends and discovered many difference in my culture and theirs. The funniest thing I found was that the toilets we're in the showers which meant that there were many things possible when in the bathroom. Well first, you can poop in the shower. This is really disgusting but funny. So imagine your almost late for school and you just woke up. You need to poop and shower because you sweat while you sleep. One could possibly poop and brush at the same time. Then jump right into showering. Now back to teaching well my first lesson was a bit different from some of my peers. The focused on STEM classes or labs in America while mine focused on a Technology or Science lesson. This was really confusing to me since I thought I made a mistake but it was fine. Next, my English lesson well that was a distaster. Basically, it was a little hard. The lesson had more advanced words and passages. This was a challenge for highschool students but manageable but a impossible task for middle school students which, I could see why. Overall, this was a very fun experience and lesson to me.

Today was very fun. I went hiking and climbing on a mountain. We had a chance to go to the market. The market was very resourceful and amazing. I personally loved how I got to taste Lotus . I had a very fun time and appreciate the trip to the west lake.

The hotel was really nice. It provided many essentials. The trip is honestly very fun. We went to the forest to see many plantations and a river. The river was very fun. We got to ride a boat to HangZhou which was a amazing. The museum contained many cool and stunning swords. The other tools were also very amazing to be consider too.
