Get to know the Spring 2020 JIC Student Workers!

Xiaoyi Zhang

Peer Mentor

Seoul

Hi everyone. My name is Xiaoyi Zhang, and I am Sophmore from China double major in Sociology and Economics. In the summer of 2019, I studied abroad in Seoul, South Korea. During my six weeks at Yonsei University, I studied East Asian politics, Korean culture, and Korean language. Having the chance to study at one of the best universities in South Korea allowed me to meet talented and friendly people from around the world, learn from a well-respected politician in South Korea, and explore the country. My summer in South Korea is one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had. I hope everyone at F&M can have the opportunity to study abroad! I am working at JIC as the Peer Mentor for international students. Feel free to stop by and ask questions, or just to have a casual chat!

Hi! My name is Malachi Longmore and I am a first-year student at F&M from New Jersey. While I have not declared a major yet, my intended major is Public Health on either the Biology or Sociology track. I am thankful to be a student worker at the JIC because I engage with a diverse group of students. Also, I am interested in travelling abroad during my time at F&M to enrich my knowledge about other cultures & communities. On campus, I am apart of I.M.P.A.C.T and the Black Student Union as the Social Action Chair. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to stop by the JIC!

Maeve O'Brien 

Student Ambassador

Bath, England
JIC Student Workers

Hi! My name is Maeve, and I am an Off-Campus Study Student Ambassador for the Office of International Programs. I am a senior and American Studies-English Literature Joint Major. In the Spring 2019 semester, I studied abroad in Bath, England with the Advanced Studies in England Program. Going abroad was something I never thought I’d do and was initially very scared to go, but it was one of the most enjoyable yet challenging things I’ve ever done. I learned so much academically as well as about myself personally, and I loved being able to learn about and explore a new city. So if you ever want to learn more about studying abroad or also share a love of Jane Austen and scones, you can always stop by the JIC and chat with me!

Hi! My name is Erica Stanitski and I am a freshman at Franklin and Marshall. As of now, I have not decided my major but hope to major in Public Health. I have grown up traveling and cannot wait to take advantage of the study abroad program at F&M. My dream is to study abroad in Switzerland or Spain during my junior year. This would allow me to meet new people, learn about different cultures, and gain knowledge about what is happening around the globe! On campus, I am involved in Hillel and currently sit on the Tzedek Committee. I am also planning on getting my Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) license this summer and am an active member of the F&M EMS program.

 Hidy Li

Peer Mentor

Beijing
Hey everyone! My name is Hidy Li, a member of class 2023, and I’m from Beijing, China. My intended major is Psychology or Anthropology. On campus, I am a member of Active Minds, and volunteer regularly with the Ware Institute. I hope to study in Italy my junior year. For me, studying abroad is an enormously enriching experience, I got to meet inspiring people from all over the world, and immerse myself in another culture. So if you have any questions, or just want a friend to talk to, I’ll be here at the JIC!

Hi, I’m Anna! I am a current junior, joint majoring in English Creative Writing and International Studies with a Dance minor. I spent a semester abroad in Shanghai, China learning Mandarin Chinese. I also learned about Chinese culture and history, as well as about Shanghai’s role as an international coastal city. On campus I am continuing to study Chinese, am involved with the F&M dance community, and attend Writer’s House events when I can. I am also an International Programs Ambassador at the JIC, which is an amazing resource for students looking to go abroad and for the international community on campus. Stop by any time!
