Favorite thing about Pittsburgh: "Primanti Brothers! I took my mom there when she visited."
Lingjie is a graduate student at Robert Morris University, working on her doctoral degree in communications and information systems. She came to Pittsburgh a year ago from Nanjing Arts Institute "to get on the study abroad boat and enrich my experience," she says.
Photography, calligraphy, shopping, and cooking are Lingjie's hobbies. She says she is impressed with Pittsburgh's downtown and its bridges.
"A girl loves to enjoy life, even when she is struggling with it!" Lingjie says.
