XIN JENNY LUAN '18 

UNITAR, ANT-HIROSHIMA, GREEN LEGACY HIROSHIMA '18-'20

Xin Jenny Luan ’18, a double major in Psychology and East Asian Studies, is the 2018-2020 Fellow to Hiroshima, Japan. Jenny was born and raised in Beijing, China and came to the United States to attend Oberlin. In addition to her literal journey from China to the U.S., Jenny has traveled through her Oberlin education to find her future calling as a researcher and practicing psychologist, and her wish to pursue a Ph.D. in clinical psychology in the future. Jenny also connected her academic study of Japanese to work outside of classes as a Resident Assistant in Asia House, a tutor in the East Asian Studies department, and an assistant in the Cooper International Language Center. Jenny’s high level of fluency in Japanese will stand her in good stead in Hiroshima where she will work at the United Nations Institute of Training and Research (UNITAR) and two small local non-profit organizations.  At the U.N. agency, Jenny will work on various programs in a diverse international environment that includes people from Japan, Australia, Africa, and the Mideast. At the smaller organizations, Jenny hopes to examine how the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima still affects people’s lives, and give back to the community using her education in psychology and Japanese language. About her future, Jenny states,  “I want to be flexible with cultures and languages to translate what I learn in the U.S. into something adaptable in China and the rest of the world. My parents have taught me to give and be happy in my life, and I see this as the best way to do so.”
