Your Local Private Translator and Tour Companion - Natasha 

I am Natasha, a 25-year-old girl who was born and raised in Kunming, Yunnan, China. O(∩_∩)O A lovely girl who always smiling is the first impression I give to most people. I love traveling and seeking adventure, collecting rich experiences and fantastic memories along the way. I dreamed to be a zoologist to search and observe animals on African Savanna, to be a geologist to go across a continent to explore volcanic caves. Of cause, they have never ever come true. I am not a scientific student, nor do I like math and physical exercise, except hiking and bicycling, something that are not competing, can be enjoyed alone and close to nature. I am a language student since high school. Although I couldn't find new islands with Columbus, I had journeys to the Center of the Earth, to the twenty thousand leagues under the sea with Verne.

The first adventure I really took was into sociology. It has been a wonderful start of my after-collage life. Believing we can open ourselves a world of caring for each other, I joined a non-profit organization called EXiDEA (exchange ideas,explore and experience). With my great partners Susan, Agnes, Porter...... and many students teams, we brainstormed, exhausted in raising funds, built public toilets, water pools, trash pools, compost depots for villages of ethnic groups in Yunnan and offered voluntary educational service for their children and children from migrant workers families, we also painted the walls of worn apartment buildings for the olds. Projects that we created even went deeper to protect the disappearing traditional ethnic culture, and to support organic farming which ties people to the earth and creat a more connected community union. I am quite empowered in my last adventure. And after my successful implementation of Yunnan Summer Minority Studies Program for a group of Americans in 2011, I got the idea of being a private travel consultant, tour translator and companion for people who want to travel to Yunnan, Guizhou, and Guangxi Province, especially for meeting open hearted local people to learn about their folk customs, for photography, and for hiking. I am ready to start another new Journey. How about you? Why not to set off together with Natasha?
