Alumni Gatherings: East Coast U.S.A.
Boston and Washington, D.C.
By Joanne Wambeke
While attending a conference in Boston this July, Joanne Wambeke of International Colleges and Partnerships was overjoyed to reunite with three ICB alumni in the Boston area: Yueran Wei, Xin Wang, and Jinghang Jia. The group gathered in Boston’s China Town for an authentic Chinese meal (complete with chicken feet). During her October vacation to the Washington, D.C. area, Joanne also reconnected with ICB alumna Fan Zhang.
Here’s what the former ICB students are up to now:
Yueran Wei (Communication 2011 graduate) achieved a master’s in public relations from Boston University this spring. He is now pursuing his optional practical training (OPT) as a project manager for a health-related product start-up company called Epler Health—a position he found via an online search. His job is to expand the Chinese market. Wei also manages the website and social media for the company. When he’s not working, he enjoys working out, boxing, and blogging about video games.
Xin Wang (Economics 2012 graduate) is pursuing a masters in economics at Boston University and hopes to graduate this December. He scored a one-month internship at ORC International, a global market research company. Upon graduating, he plans to pursue a career in investment banking. In his spare time, Wang enjoys working out and skiing.
Jinghang Jia (Economics 2011 graduate) completed her masters in economic policy at Boston University in May. After traveling around the United States, she returned to China to work as a research assistant for a professor at the Chinese Academy of Governance, where she may pursue a PhD. Eventually, she intends to work for a government agency in China. Jia’s advice to students now studying in Denver is to “DO MORE! Go to Red Rocks and skiing! Get a car and drive everywhere!” Jia very much misses Colorado. Maybe we’ll see her back here one day!
Fan Zhang (2011 Communication Graduate) is pursuing a Mater’s in global communication from the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She is expecting to graduate May 2014. Fan participated in an exchange to Geneva Switzerland in spring 2013 and achieved a certificate in International Relations and International Development. She is currently in Washington, D.C. to continue her studies while interning at CCTV (China Central Television)-America as a broadcasting operations intern. When talking about Denver, Fan said that she missed the lawn in front of the plaza. She also wanted to encourage students to join the ICB club and enjoy the diversity of the campus.
