Tianhao Zhang, from China, spent four weeks volunteering at the National Veterans Art Museum in Chicago as part of CHI’s Short Term Enrichment Program. Tianhao shares a week of sightseeing and exploring in Chicago.
The first day I went to wicker park, immersing the hipster culture. I found some pretty stores and bought some things that are really cute.
The second day I went to the National Veteran Museum, where I was going to volutneer. It’s a really fantastic museum showing the experiences of the veterans in the war. The directors in the museum are very nice.
The next few days I went to a lot of famous places in Chicago, like The Filed Museum, The Shed Aquarium,Wills Tower. I got so many different and interesting experiences.
