Town Crier

TEWKSBURY — The Town Crier extends a sincere congratulations to Shaw­sheen Valley Tech­nical High School class of 2012 graduate Giselle Mag­ner upon her return home after five months studying abroad in China.

Magner, who graduated from the school’s Design and Visual Communi­ca­tions program, is currently attending UMass Boston and majoring in Asian Languages after previously earning her associates degree at Bunker Hill Com­munity College.

She was one of 16 students nationwide who earned a place in the Fulbright Hay’s Group Project Abroad in Xian, China. Xian is the capital of China’s Shaanxi Province in the country’s central-northwest region, and is home to China’s famed terracotta army, as well as numerous other local attractions.

She became interested in joining the program as a result of her lifelong passion for Asian culture, which began when she fell in love with Chinese and Japanese pop-culture as a child.

She became even more interested in southeast Asia after working for several years at a Chinese-Japa­nese fusion restaurant, and by the time she reached college she was eager to learn all that she could about southeast Asian languages and cultures.

She plans to use her ex­periences to help other students with a similar passion by translating for language education games and software.

She describes her stay as an unforgettable experience and notes mountain climbing in Linjiang and making friends with students from around the world as some of the most memorable highlights of her trip.

She recommends studying abroad to other students and encourages them to “embrace as much of the culture as you can,” be­cause “not everyone can have this kind of opportunity.”

Congratulations, Giselle, on all of your hard work and accomplishments.
