Rising Through the Ranks

News & Events

Shayn Stephens is the first Flagship student in the nation to, quite literally, come up through the ranks. She began her Chinese language learning in high school and accelerated her skills by attending Chinese STARTALK, a 3-week language program for high school students sponsored by BYU Chinese Flagship Center. Once attending BYU, she continued on this path by going on BYU Study Abroad in Nanjing and then joining the Chinese Flagship program. Now, she is being rewarded for her efforts as she joins fellow capstone students for a year of study and internship in mainland China starting this fall. Congratulations Shayn on building your language and culture skills in pursuit of your goal to work in International Development with China.
