Hello! My name is Kevin Collins. I am a rising Sophomore in the College of Business Administration and I am pursuing a double major in Marketing and Finance. I am from Lansdale, Pennsylvania which is about five hours east of Pittsburgh. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends and exploring the Pittsburgh area.
I had originally heard about the Plus3 program early in my first semester and knew right away that it was something that I wanted to do. China was at the top of my list because of its focus on the technology industry and because not many people get to travel to China in their lifetimes, so I found it to be a great opportunity to have a once in a lifetime experience. While in China, I hope that I can gain a new perspective on the world after experiencing a different culture while also learning about the smartphone industry and what goes into running such large and innovative businesses.
I am excited to travel to all of our destinations in China, especially the Great Wall. I am looking forward to being amazed by something new every day on this trip. The only thing that I am nervous about for this trip is trying to navigate the large cities with huge populations. I am looking forward to learning as much as I can in the short time that I am there and hope to make memories that will last a lifetime!
