Billy Chen

Senior Projects (Part 9 of a series)

Senior Projects finished up on April 6. We have been introducing a senior to you each week in this short blog series, which wraps up today with this post. (See our April 14 blog post for the first installment in the series.)

This week, I'd like to introduce you to Billy Chen. Billy joined the Class of 2017 in Ninth Grade and has lived with the Olson Family since moving to the US from China, to attend Green Meadow. (Matt Olson's senior project presentation can be seen here and was profiled in an April 21 blog post).

Billy gave a moving presentation on his experience of kendo, a modern Japanese martial art whose relative is kumdo, a Korean interpretation of the sport. Billy shared with us that as a child, he read comic books featuring a kendo master, and that his dream was to study the art when he grew up.

Watch the kendo demonstration featuring Billy (in white) and his mentor (in black).  

Congratulations, Billy!
