Sherrie Shen is a bubbly, petite sophomore at The Bryn Mawr School who likes hanging out with her friends in her spare time when she’s not doing homework, playing one of several sports, participating in the school’s string ensemble or practicing piano. Her hectic lifestyle is not unlike those of her peers at competitive independent schools in Baltimore. But unlike most, Sherrie—whose Chinese name is Xierui—has left her family in China to attend high school in the U.S. She lives in a dorm at nearby Notre Dame of Maryland University with other international high school students who attend Bryn Mawr, as well as Friends and Roland Park Country School.
