Congratulations to WLC alumna Maryan Escarfullett (self-designed Chinese major, ’12) who has successfully completed her master’s in international studies at the Johns Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese and American Studies. The thesis for her MA degree is titled “2014中国人的价值观/Changes in Chinese Values from 1990-2014: A Study of the World Values Survey” (in Chinese). An English version of it is available, via The Diplomat.
During her time at the Johns Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese and American Studies, Maryan demonstrated her strong leadership. She served as an associate editor of the campus newspaper SAIS Observer as well as Hassenfeld fellow and co-president of Nanjing Volunteers (a new online platform that connects volunteer groups with local philanthropic organizations). While writing her thesis, Maryan also translated a business management practices book for Suning Electronics, China’s largest electronic device manufacturer. After relocating to Washington, DC Maryan has started volunteering as the Chair of the East Asia Discussion Group of Young Professionals in Foreign Policy.
