Of all the different places that I have traveled to and lived in, I was most nervous about coming to China. The combination of not being confident in my Chinese abilities and my concerns about the logistics of life in a foreign country with a foreign bureaucracy was very daunting (not to mention my parents’ enthusiasm about expressing their many concerns about my stay here). So when my Chinese professor at university told me about how CSA takes care of many of the overwhelming tasks involved with coming to China, I was both excited and relieved. I still think that working with CSA to come to China was the best decision I could have made.
