As a former professor, International College Beijing Communications alum (BA, 2003) Ai Addyson-Zhang saw firsthand how a traditional school curriculum wasn't serving her students—who were terrified of failure, stressed, and lacking real-world skills.

In addition, Addyson-Zhang was this year’s recipient of the Communication Department’s Barbara J. Walkosz Distinguished Alumni Award.
