Crowe, Jessica A.
The goal of this paper is to see whether the interviewed students of American Midwestern universities born in China and in America are influenced by traditional Chinese values when making important life choices when it comes to education, work, and romantic relationships. While it is not my intention to make the results of this study generalizable to a larger population, I believe that themes and patterns observed here are worth analyzing and can constitute a starting point for larger projects to follow.
