A sophomore business management major at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff will be traveling to China for a two-week course on vocational education at the China-U.S. Rising Star Student Study Tour. Taylor Johnson will travel to China this month.

“Taylor fits the profile of students we are targeting through our global leadership development initiative, which prepares students for effective engagement in a global society,” said Pamela Moore, associate dean for global engagement, Office of International Programs (OIPS) at UAPB. “She made a strong impression on me through the focus, initiative, enthusiasm and commitment she demonstrated towards participation in the Rising Star Tour.”

Johnson said she is also interested in learning about Chinese e-commerce and how large online companies function online.

“I believe this program will expose me to another culture besides my own,” she said. “I feel going on this trip will enhance my creativity, keep my mind sharp and increase my connection to others, as well as myself.”
