Dr. Baozhen Luo was born and raised in China. She came to the U.S. after obtaining her BA degree in Journalism in China in 2003. Later in 2009, she obtained a Ph.D. degree in Sociology from Georgia State University (Atlanta, GA).
Studying abroad has changed her life--it broadened her horizon, led her to a fulfilling career, and most importantly empowered and bettered her as a person. Luo’s favorite writer David Mitchell says “Travel far enough, you meet yourself.” She looks forward to bringing more and more WWU students to China and experience the life-changing effect of studying abroad.
