Reflections from Participants in the "Hefner Initiative - USA/China/Asia" 2016 Summer Program


August 30, 2016
By Lucy Carr

Five American students and two teachers participated in this year’s program, spending twelve days in Beijing and Suzhou. The students were hosted by Beijing High School No. 4, and visited the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Great Wall of China, and the National Museum of China, among many other sites. The group then took a bullet train to Suzhou, where they visited the Humble Administrator’s Garden, the Suzhou Museum, and learned traditional Chinese calligraphy.

“Perhaps one of the most unforgettable portions of the trip was meeting Phyllis and her parents, my host family. Several days into our stay in Beijing, I remember calling home and telling my parents that Phyllis was the most like myself of anyone that I have ever met. Who would have thought that such a well-matched friend existed half way across the world?”
-Eileen Egolf, Hefner Scholar- Creede

“Staying with my host family showed me that although there are big differences between U.S. and Chinese culture, we aren’t all that different. That these people went out of their way to accommodate me, for nothing in return, has really stuck with me. Their kindness, generosity, and hospitality was the highlight of my trip.”
-Kaitlin Hawkes, Hefner Scholar- Webb

“This trip gave me a genuine understanding of a culture I assumed I knew everything about. Every day led to new discoveries; expectations were met or corrected, insight about our respective cultures was shared between me and the local students, the beauty of the Chinese monuments inspired awe, reminding me the limits of what pictures can convey.”
-Raphael Huang, Hefner Scholar- Webb

“I kept arriving at one simple realization: China deems its cultural heritage as an asset, something to be inherently proud of, and something to not be shed. While America innovates as a startling pace, shifting from cultural importance to unthinkable technology. Regardless of these different ideologies, their partnership is essential to the world on not only an economic level, but something of a cultural one as well. A great of number of things can be learned from China.”
-Ritvik Ganguly, Hefner Scholar- OSSM

“I gained newfound wisdom on China’s connection to the west and finally verified my beliefs about modern Chinese culture myself. On top of that, I had seen some of the greatest sites to ever be created by man himself, made new friends, and got to live adventurously for over ten days.”
-Zach Arani, Hefner Scholar- OSSM

“A real connection with another culture begins from visiting, engaging, looking closely and open mindedly at their way of life. I am so fortunate and grateful to have had the experience to spend time interacting with some of the people and history of China. It has changed the way I will always think of China. It is one of my favorite places I have visited, a place I want to learn much more about, and one that I want to revisit throughout my life. It has also changed the way I will discuss and promote China in the U.S.—as a place of incredible history, hardworking and peaceful people, and forward-thinking in our modern world.”
-Blair Amberly, Hefner Ambassador- Free Union Country School

“Through the Hefner Initiatives, the students realize how big the world truly is. They gain a greater understanding of other cultures, and witness new perspectives outside the United States. Seeing the emotional and intellectual development of our students is one of the great joys in participating in this program. They take plenty home with them, but – whether they realize it or not – also leave something with their new friends in Beijing. “
-Mark Li, Hefner Ambassador-OSSM

Reflections from Participants in the 2015 "Hefner Initiative - USA/China/Asia" China summer program


August 17, 2015
By Metra Nichols

The 2015 "Hefner Initiative - China" program this past July was a great success with two weeks of cultural experience in Beijing and Suzhou China. Beijing never fails to awe-inspire tourists from around the world, and this year was the program's first experience in the Venice of the Orient - Suzhou!

     "The trip to China was a truly remarkable experience! I am extremely grateful I was given such a wonderful opportunity. Only a week into the fall semester, and I've already been able to share some of my new insight and experience with my students."
-Monique Baxter, Hefner Ambassador-OSSM

     "The time I was able to spend with our host students allowed me to better understand the Chinese culture and how their views are different from my own, and I now understand and can see that a good relationship between China and the United States is imperative. My trip to China was an unforgettable experience!"
-Sophia Mastakas, Hefner Awardee-Albemarle

     "We were shown the wonders and history of Beijing by our fantastic host buddies! The Sino-US relationship is changing and our two nations are the two most powerful countries in the world, and having a mutually beneficial relationship is vital."
-Cori McGinley, Hefner Awardee-Webb Schools

     "All of the secondhand sources about the world pale in comparison with firsthand experience. The life in the cities we visited in China were completely opposite to my quiet suburban life in The States, and this experience was far beyond anything I'd ever seen or even heard about in the US."
-Francisco Munoz, Hefner Awardee-Webb Schools

     "This is truly a once in a lifetime experience; even if I had the privilege to make this journey at some other point in my life, I would never have made the friends that I did, learned what I learned, nor had the opportunity to understand just how magnificent a country China is!"
-Pedro De Aos, Hefner Awardee-OSSM

     "China, in a word, was incredible. Its seamless integration of modern and ancient was a sight to behold, as were the throngs of people we perennially waded through. Everything was larger than life, and the kindness felt by everyone and our hosts was amazing!"
-Emily Dial, Hefner Awardee-OSSM

Hefner Awardees Reflect on their Experience of the Hefner Initiative-China and Singapore 2014 program.


August 20, 2014
By Metra Nichols

The Hefner Initiative 2014 program this past July was an extraordinary success with two weeks of cultural experience in Singapore and in Beijing, China. Learning about the many different cultures of Singapore and astonished by the ancient history deeply rooted in Beijing, this year's program was a great one. The 2014 Hefner Initiative Hefner Awardees from the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics in Oklahoma City and from The Webb Schools in Claremont, California share their experience.

     "There was an immediate, fulfilling experience that I felt on this trip. It was both meditative and rich with culture, food, and the people. The societies really opened up my eyes to so many possibilities in the building of relationships with others. I would love to express in the future to others how gratifying it is to embed in a place that was previously foreign to me."
-Samantha Okere, Hefner Awardee-OSSM

     "Traveling to Singapore and China was an amazing cultural experience that has helped shape my view of the world in many ways. Being immersed in the daily lives of people in two countries as different from each other as they are from eachother has had a serious impact on my life. I realized how much more I have to learn about the world. The Hefner Initiative has inspired me to travel the more and made a very positive influence on my life."
-Katie McDonald, Hefner Awardee-OSSM

     "The cultural knowledge I had experienced during my journey was greatly impactful. I appreciated the accomplishments and unique traits of each city and felt I gained valuable insight into the lives of others. More than anything else, I'll take away that there are ways of life so distinct from my own and learning about them is truly intellectually satisfying. I am so grateful to the Robert and MeiLi Hefner Foundation for affording me the opportunity to discover this about myself."
-Anthony Palacio, Hefner Awardee-Webb Schools

     "What a fascinating experience, and I know I will never forget it. It was an amazing opportunity and changed the way I think about the world especially foreign relations. I learned how important someone's culture is when trying to understand him or her. I really grew as a human being in that I better understand the importance of culture. I really enjoyed getting to know the host famiies and their ways of life!"
-Maddie Gaumer, Hefner Awardee-Webb Schools

     "Singapore is a very pleasant place to explore with all main attractions close together, while Beijing was much more populous and spread out with lots of bicycles and motorbikes. This was an appreciated in-depth look at two of the most important Asian cities in the world. I thank the Robert and MeiLi Hefner Foundation for providing me with this wonderful travel experience."
-Kurt Bachmann, Physics Teacher and Hefner Awardee-OSSM

Life-Changing Trip to China Adds to Vast Cultural Knowledge


By 2012 Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics Hefner Awardees, Alyssa Rudelis and Phil Burnett
Winter 2012, OSSM Parents Weekly
In July, we took part in a trip to China and Singapore. The two-week adventure, sponsored by the Robert and MeiLi Hefner Foundation, focused on cultural immersion. From living with foreign families to attending their schools, we can attest to our new-found cultural knowledge. This eye-opening journey began before dawn on one of many flights to our first destination.

We arrived in Singapore in the midst of pouring rain after more than 30 hours of flight. There were five in our group. We stayed in the dorms of the National University of Singapore High School of Math and Science. In terms of curriculum, residence life and general aspirations of the student body, we remarked on the similarities between OSSM and the Singaporean high school. While on the island, we as Hefner Awardees attended daily classes in chemistry, English, physics, biology and statistics. Outside of school, we explored the city's sites, international cuisine and public transportation system.

After spending a few days at the school and becoming acquainted with our Singaporean classmates, we boarded a plane for Shanghai. The expected three-hour layover after arriving in Shanghai soon became only a hope. Due to historical flooding in Beijing, we and our guide were stranded in Shanghai for the entire night. The next afternoon, we arrived in the capital of the People's Republic of China where we met our host families.
