“When we went to China, well for one I had people asking to take pictures with me because of my blond hair. Then, we went to go see this Chinese play and as we were walking out, I was walking with my dad, and my sister and my mom were behind me and apparently this Chinese lady came up from behind me and pet my head because she wanted to touch the blond hair — it was really weird and funny… I’m definitely more culturally aware of things. I’ve seen a lot more than other people — I’m not trying to sound cocky by that, but I’ve seen people live in slums and I’ve worked with kids in the Philippines who live like that. We went to Vietnam and we walked with a tribe through the mountains. So, I feel like seeing all those things has opened my eyes to a bunch of different cultures. I like to think that I am a better person because of it. If I hadn’t had those experiences, I don’t think I would be the person I am today,” junior Kristin Wenner moved from Singapore to Ohio and then from Ohio to LHS in middle school.
