Hannah Mei Grisley

大家好!新年快乐!I'm currently studying Chinese Language on my year abroad in Beijing, China. I was lucky enough to be a recipient of the CACH<Back Grant last year, which helped go towards my preparation for living in China (visa, vaccines, etc). I kept a blog where I documented living in China, from the food I eat to my travels, including a homestay I took part in over Chinese New Year in a village called Suoyuan in Zhejiang Province.

Robert Penny

Robert received the first ever CACH<Back award to support his studies at East 15 Acting School (part of the University of Essex), a BA in World Performance, which is a hybrid acting course. It includes courses on Chinese opera and many other Asian art forms. The grant went towards Robert’s tuition fees, eventually he hopes that the course will help him fulfil his dreams of not only becoming a professional actor but also to enable him to understand in more depth his own cultural background.
