Hope Marshall (Sabillasville, MD) is a Belgium born, China raised, language loving, world traveling, German-American Hoosier majoring in International Studies with a focus on East Asia and Global Health. As you can see, her home is all over the map. The international isn’t just her passion or her life commitment; it’s who she is. This past summer, she researched the local perceptions of health and environment throughout China while participating in intensive Mandarin training courses in Shanghai. She is still searching for a career that will complete her need for the “international” and will allow her to pursue her goal of making the unfamiliar familiar and the global local.
