Amy Tianyi and Meg are back with the second season of The Spark, where they open up the conversation by introducing their first guest, Rachel Ruonan Zheng. Rachel is a former fashion industry journalist and, currently, an editor at VICE Asia Pacific. Amy first met Rachel in New York City by happenstance when Rachel was one of the speakers at an event she attended. They immediately hit it off, sharing their bilingual writing backgrounds and their love for cross-cultural content creation. When choosing The Spark's first guest, Rachel instantly came to Amy’s mind. In this two-part episode, Rachel shares her expectations versus the reality of studying in the U.S.. She also shares her stories of working across cultures in China and America. Most importantly, she shares her journey navigating through U.S. and Chinese cultures' complexities as she traversed from China to America and back again.
