Hi, I am Lucy Dustman and I live in Qingdao, China. I go to an International Baccalaureate (IB) school here called Qingdao Amerasia International School (QAIS). As a tenth grader, I am working to complete a personal project that has inspired me to dream, find my purpose, direct my own thinking, and change the world in some special way.

For my project, I have created a website called globallymindedchatter.com. I wanted to help other IB students and teachers around the world communicate with each other freely, in a way that would connects us all, and allow for the discussion of our questions and thoughts based in part, around the IB Learner Profile. My goal is to support students and teachers in developing a better understanding of the global society that we live in. I hope that many students and teachers will share their personal experiences, thoughts, and opinions. I think that if we all engage and chatter, big ideas can develop and we can make a huge difference!
