Nov. 14 through 18 is International Education Week, a joint initiative of the U.S. State Department and the US Department of Education.
To celebrate that week, here is the story of 23-year-old Alex Berry and 21-year-old Ai "Anna" He who are both studying Industrial Engineering at Georgia Tech. Berry is from Albany, Georgia and He is from the Sichuan province of China. While they did have some classes together, they didn't really get to know each other until they arrived in Singapore as part of the Singapore-Beijing Program.
When they recently met up to reminisce about their experience in the StoryCorps Atlanta booth, He was curious to find out about Berry's first impression of Singapore.
