At this year’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony, alum Chloé Zhao won the Best Director and Best Drama Motion Picture - with “Nomadland”. Although it seems all glitz and glam now, Zhao has worked hard for her mega-success, and her winding, history-making path may surprise you.

The Chinese director, screenwriter and producer got her start at 27 years old, when she moved from Beijing to attend NYU's Tisch School of the Arts to pursue her dreams in film. There, she created her standout 2010 debut, “Daughters”, a short film about a 14-year-old girl in rural China who tries to escape an arranged marriage. Already signaling her future success, the short film won several awards, including Best Student Live Action Short at the Palm Springs International ShortFest. In essence, her tremendous talent was evident from the start.

The Tisch program was an incredible opportunity for Zhao, as she also got the chance to develop her first feature film in 2015, titled “Songs My Brother Taught Me”. Premiering at Sundance, it was a spectacular step into the film industry that enlisted Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker in the production. Detailing the lives of two Native American siblings who live with their single mother on the Pine Ridge Reservation, it showcased the complexity of Zhao's work.

What's like 

When you experience a different culture through educational and cultural exchange you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and those around you- deepening your knowledge of foreign cultures and strengthening international relationships.

Make Lasting Connections

When you live with a host family, you are integrated into the family and temporarily become part of it. By doing so, you become aware of the inner concerns, hopes, and dreams of a family, a city within USA. And with this realization comes the corresponding knowledge of what it means to belong to your own particular country and culture.

Self Developments

Participants develop leadership skills, self-confidence and a greater understanding of the complexities of the world around them. Getting to know the locals, experiencing USA culture, and living as they do; these are things tourists miss, and this is where you really discover the way of life in USA.

Times Higher Education World University Ranking [2020.09.05]

Times Higher Education announced the latest global university rankings 2021 on 2nd September 2020. Litz advise students look beyond the comprehensive rankings, pay attention to other factors such as the faulty you are interested in, your intended major, the school culture, geographical environment, teacher-student ratio, social activities and the important tuition and living expenses. Again, your "best school" should be the one that suit you best. Also ask yourself, can you handle the study of the school you aspire to? Will you study happily at that school?
