A group of Harvard students brought a better understanding of China and its people back to the US after a one-week trip to the country, which ended on Sunday.

Organized by the World Youth Development Forum, 27 students from 14 different countries visited government departments, companies, cultural institutions and historical places in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Nanjing with Harvard China Trek 2016.

Harvard China Trekers communicated with senior officials and successful businessmen at places such as the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League, the National Poverty Alleviation Office, leading Chinese enterprise AliBaba, the Yangtze River Delta SME incubator and Chinese mainstream media.

It's Anna Raginskaya's first time at the Great Wall. The second-year MBA student at Harvard Business School was born in Ukraine and raised in Brooklyn, New York.

Raginskaya bought a scarf at the foot of the Great Wall as it's much colder there than in the center of Beijing, and she's very happy to show it to the group.

She says she was excited to visit and feel the weight of the Great Wall's history in person.
