Interview With New Oasis Alumni - Kevin Jiang
New Oasis traveled to University of Pennsylvania and talked with our alumnus Kevin Jiang who graduated from Allentown Central Catholic High School last year.

We are currently New Oasis host parents, and this is a great video to see a college student reflect on his time during high school and his host parents and describe what was most valuable to him. It was fun to see my wife's and my alma mater #upenn while we're at it!
What a great testimony! It truly takes a village - thank you to the host family that supported Kevin, the Academic Advisor, Sue Zhang, for encouraging him to start a club, and classmates and teachers that walked with him through the international student journey!

Xiaohui (pictures on the left) from St. David's School was in DC this past weekend to participate in a 30 hour hackathon organized by George Washington University. Students interested in programming gathered at GWU from all over the country for learning and innovation. We are so glad to see Xiaohui actively explore her interests and take steps to achieve her goals.
In case you are wondering what a hackathon is!
A hackathon (also known as a hack day, hackfest or codefest) is a design sprint-like event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, and others, often including subject-matter-experts, collaborate intensively on software projects. The competition can last from several hours to several days. ... See MoreSee Less
I had fun chaperoning Xiaohui to this event the past weekend. She told me she has very broad interests in physics and computer science. I am really glad to see how our students have taken opportunities in the US to explore their interests and discover themselves. Way to go Xiaohui!
