Nancy Ni is studying Political Science, East Asian Languages and Cultures, and Philosophy. She decided to join IPAW because she believes that it is important to learn hard skills, such as data analysis, to do further research in Political Sciences, and IPAW provides her the opportunity and support to learn those skills. In addition to IPAW, Nancy is a part of IU’s Chinese Flagship Program. She is currently writing her honors thesis on comparative political theory between China and the West. After she finishes her junior year at IU, she plans on spending a year studying and interning in Nanjing, China, for her capstone year. When she comes back, she plans on studying for the LSAT or GRE.
