About me – Nike Ye

Hello, My name is Naike Ye, preferred to be called Nike. When they first meet me people say that I have a cool name for that it’s the name of the famous sports brand Nike, and that’s how people usually remember me!:)

I am from Beijing, China, a first-year student here at Vassar. I used to study in an international school implementing International Baccalaureate program for three years prior to coming to Vassar, and my high school life helped me navigate my interests in sciences. I also enjoy collaborating with others and work with students so I am also thinking of majoring in Education. One project that I have dedicated most of my time outside of classroom was working with the Bethel China Organization, which runs institutions that adopt orphans in local areas that are of visual impairments (you could find more information visiting http://bethelchina.org) We’ve been trying to raise people’s awareness and offering support in the ways we could. You could subscribe to our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/bethelbcis to see our achievements for the past years and keep updated.

I look forward to working with all of you and am excited to explore how we could utilize technologies to enforce literacy teaching/learning in different content areas and how they could elicit critical discourses on different issues.
