Rosa prefers to be called by her Chinese name, Chen Yan. Rosa is from Chongqing in southwestern China, where her parents are both taxi drivers. Chen Yan hopes to be a television sports reporter. Chen Yan is working hard on her English, even watching "Desperate Housewives" to learn some more colloquial phrases!!
One day in June, Chen Yan escorted me to a school for migrant children in western Beijing and we gathered some great sound and photographs of the children. I wrote an article for an American newspaper about the school and I will post a link to it in the future. I also hope to make a slide show of the children using audio from their classroom. Here are a few of the photos.
