 JAMES PACKMAN  I am truly interested in the world. Beyond that, I want to make the world a better place, which means forging connections of friendship and trust to bring people closer together. When I first walked into Chinese class on the first day of high school, I fell in love with the ancient majesty, the intense history, the profound culture, the intricate language, and the beautiful thoughts of China. My twin goals, then, are to bring people together and to learn more about China. I hope to, perhaps, become a diplomat in some capacity. But I know to be the best I can be at such a job, I ought to 读万卷书,行万里路。
