mary is the SWEETEST lady you’ll ever meet. she is our native coordinator here in china. basically she's our go to girl about everything. she takes us everywhere we need to go, makes sure we have food on the weekends, helps translate when needed and much, much more. this is what i love about her:
*she is about five inches shorter than me, wears three inch heels every day because she wants to be taller.
*she is 23 and in charge of helping us this semester.
*she is so concerned about our safety and our well being.
she had everything prepared for us when we arrived (new rooms, two beds softer then theirs with head rests and sheets and comforter and pillows, table with two chairs, computer on desk with shelves, water, tv on stand, bed stand, phone, internet (a few days later but in our rooms nonetheless) ac, new showers, towels, toothbrushes, toothpaste, face towels, body wash, shampoo, house slippers, new washer, hot plate, crock pot, microwave, fridge, our own canteen, table with 7 chairs, plates, bowls, silverware, bathroom cleaner and probably a few more things if that’s even possible.
*her english is really good and she loves learning more. (she writes down all of the english words we teach her in an english notebook we bought for her)
*she's quite the jokester...but you wouldn't know after just meeting her. it takes a while for it to come out from hiding.
*her laugh would make me laugh even if i was seconds away from death.
*she has the cutest little haircut.
*she wears the matching pj's we all bought.
*she takes us everywhere we need to go. i'm so sure that she's sick of going to the market.
*she truly has such a sweet, sincere spirit and I love her so much already.
love you mary rachel ma. you will always have a place in my heart.
