Ellen Li ’15
Majors: Economics and Political Science
Hi Everyone! My name is Ellen Li and I’m a sophomore. Before Bryn Mawr, I lived in Jinan, China, a city close to Beijing for pretty much my entire life. I’m a huge sports fan. I was lucky enough to be a volunteer during Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. It was definitely an awesome experience. Right before my sophomore year of high school started, I found that I really wanted to have something different in my life; like travel around the world or write a novel or whatever can be called “cool.” And an idea just popped into my head. “Hey, why not study abroad in the US?” Finally Bryn Mawr ended up to be my destination and I got the chance to meet all the wonderful girls here!
