Hi my name is Chilli I am 11 years old. I love anything animal related and I love art, sport and music. Even though I will miss all of my friends and family I am still so excited to go to China.

I wanted to be a part of team China because I wanted to see what it is like in another culture.

I am looking forward to see my Chinese exchange student Lisa who we hosted for a month last year. (And not having to do homework)

I have not been oversees before. That is why I am 10 times more exited.

I am not nervous about anything.

I cannot wait to try all of the different foods, no matter how weird or different they are.

    Hi Dakota, I’m sure you will have an amazing time. When Matt went we downloaded an app to our phone so we could track the plane all the way to China. We went outside and actually heard the plane as it flew over Bendigo. Love from the Taylor’s

When you touch the ground I have booked you in for dinner (spag Bol) the purpose of this will be to teach you social etiquette on how not to inhale your pasta πŸ™‚ enjoy every moment of every day. Love you lots… Aunty Jodie, uncle James and Aria Xoxox

    Wow Kota!
    What a fantastic time you are having; with your peers and as a visitor to this wondrous, rich in culture country – an experience to revel and delight in. Looking forward to seeing you though. The kids are missing you so much; especially Piper.
