China - A Land of Amazing Contrasts and Beauty

Network members Annette Senn and Veronika Kaiser have both visited China for different reasons, and have since become curious about the country.

Other than her involvement with Chinese delegations to the area through work, Annette’s experience with China is a personal one. She got to know a Chinese family after hosting a student through the UWC Guest Family Program. In March 2019, Annette was invited to visit the family in Chengdu, Sichuan province and travelled around China’s southwest provinces together with her Chinese friends, although she also enjoyed the experience of travelling on her own.

Veronika visited China several times in a professional capacity when she was principal of a vocational school in Freiburg. She was introduced to different schools in China and many members of the teaching faculty. Since 2007, Veronika has been a member of the China Forum Freiburg e.V., and was elected president in 2018. The China Forum Freiburg offers public lectures and talks on China.

Both Annette and Veronika are aware that whenever they share their positive experiences here in Germany, they often encounter surprise and mixed feelings about the country. This is a great opportunity to hear two women describe their personal experiences and sentiments about China from different points of view.
