  1. Cecelia, “add oil”! Thank you for sharing your story. I am also from HK and have not been home for almost 2 years. Glad that you have friends around you for support . Surely we all are learning a very tough lesson here. Stay positive and we will all grow stronger !

  2. Who or what is preventing these students from traveling to their families China!?

    I have many international students from different countries who have no problem visiting their countries and coming back.

    1. It’s in the article — the quarantine periods are too long and it is economically and academically unfeasible. If I went back to Hong Kong now I would have to stay in a government-sanctioned hotel for 3 weeks and have to pay for it myself. I cannot afford it.

  3. Good luck to you, and thank you for sharing your story!Ut sounds like you are making the most of Boston, keep up your positive attitude and maybe the situation will change. Happy holidays andmat future success follow you!
