Hi, Hans here. I come from Nanjing, China’s capital during the Ming dynasty. I’m a rising sophomore at a small boarding school in New Hampshire, US. I think of myself as an upbeat, easy-going and kind-hearted person with a wide variety of interests. I’m quite sporty and enjoy sailing, swimming and skating. In addition, I’m an avid cyclist, and love basketball, and soccer. In my spare time, I like to listen to music, travel, and make handicrafts. As a member of my school’s varsity sailing team, I can be competitive as well. In 2017, I won the Youth Sailing League national championship held by the Chinese Yachting Association. I have also participated the Topper World Championship twice. I’m looking forward to the 2018 Arctic Expedition, and believe it’ll be a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience. I can’t wait to make friends with other talented students, while learning from everyone on our voyage.
