As an Asian student who joined the school's Black Alliance Club, Charlie Xie ('20) engages himself in a cultural discourse that goes beyond cultural boundaries. Being a keen observer of both Eastern and Western culture, Charlie investigates people's behavior in different societies, and whether that behavior results from specific circumstances of that society, or is it the manifestation of a larger trend unbeknownst to him. Charlie is interested in culture, history, anthropology, philosophies and other subjects of humanities. He, however, doesn't view them as branches of studies. He regards them as ways of life or knowledge that is required for a qualification of the global citizenship. He is also very interested in math and science.
