We’re not this alien ‘other’ group
Four Chinese students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have set up their own YouTube channel called Channel C, to explain to Americans the key issues where Chinese students struggle to integrate into US culture. This can lead to many Chinese students feeling isolated. ,” Cecilia Miao, one of the channel’s founders, told the Wisconsin State Journal. “We should try to celebrate differences, not ignore it.”
The students have worked to produce a series of entertaining and thought provoking video clips including:
- Why Chinese Studnets Don’t Party
- Pretty Chinese Women: on different views of beauty
- Is Drinking The College Experience?
- Chinese names– how to pronounce
The site has attracted 100, 000+ views…so far. Its a very clever way of thinking about connecting the world.
