Residence: Shenzhen, China
School: Houde Academy
Intended major: Politics, Economics
Age during program: Grade 10

Hector is a curious student with a passion for politics, economics, and sociology. Last year, he had a great time in an Anthropology class at school, which inspired him to enroll in a Comparative Government course.

What challenges did he face?

  • Hector has a tendency to be overly enthusiastic, which has resulted in discussions devolving into a slew of diverse themes. It’s a good idea to brainstorm several themes early on in the research process, but eventually students need to decide on one research topic.

Matched professor:

The mentor teaches Urban Health and Criminal Justice at the University of Pennsylvania as a lecturer in Urban Studies and Sociology. He is particularly interested in health, criminal justice, gender, social psychology, and military studies.

How did our program help him?

  • Hector created a fantastic final paper with the help of his mentor. He was able to construct a strong argument by combining different sources of information.
  • Taking more than what his grade can usually handle, Hector learned how to engage with and interpret research articles.

Below is part of an example work done during the program:
