Chinese international students’ experiences during the pandemic
Linlin studied Psychology and Communication in China and then she went to Hong Kong for her graduate school in Communication. After working as a financial journalist for a local newspaper for several years in Hong Kong, Linlin found social work was her calling.
Linlin then went to the U.S. for the MSW program at NYU to pursue her social work dream. After graduating from NYU, Linlin functioned as a child therapist at a hospital’s outpatient mental health clinic for several years in NYC and then moved to the bay area. After working for one year in another hospital in California, Linlin starts her own private practice.
