My name is Qixian Ou, and I’m a junior at Jones College Prep who resides in the city’s Chinatown neighborhood. The thing I love most about Chicago is the diversity in culture of what the city has to offer. I truly believe that there’s somewhere and something for everyone in Chicago. Taking into consideration of the challenges the city faces, I am most committed and devoted to addressing social justice matters and values within the city. Throughout my HLC experience, I hope to advance and develop the skills and qualities leaders embody. I am looking forward to developing more proficient communication and collaboration skills with my peers and community members.
