The Blakemore Freeman Fellowship changed the trajectory of my career
and life, granting me a tremendous opportunity to focus my energy
exclusively on one dream: raising my Chinese language skills to an
advanced professional level. As a Blakemore Freeman Fellow, I was
not only provided with access to some of the world’s most skilled
Chinese language instructors at National Taiwan University’s
International Chinese Language Program (ICLP), but also joined an
exceptional group of classmates who have become life-time
friends. The ICLP education opened many exciting professional doors.
Currently, I’m working as the leader of a division marketing team
for the Chinese subsidiary of a Fortune 500 company. As the only
non-Chinese member of the its China business team I am completely
immersed in Chinese language and culture on a daily basis.
My Blakemore Freeman Fellowship provided me with the tools I need to survive as a business leader in China.
