Xirui "Shari" Du '18

Shari has just begun her first year at O’Neal as a member of the Class of 2018. She is from Jinzhong, China. Her host family is Mr. and Mrs. Will Rhem, who both work at O’Neal, and Charlotte ’29 and Caroline, age 3. Shari enjoys going wherever the Rhem family goes and is enjoying her time at O’Neal. Her favorite food at home is Hot Pot, a kind of meat stew, and her favorite American food is Macaroni and Cheese.

In her spare time, Shari enjoys drawing and playing her little tiny guitar, and having fun with her host sisters. Shari’s favorite thing about O’Neal so far is being surrounded by so many nice people. She is really enjoying being so independent and is looking forward to learning more, becoming more mature, and expanding her horizons.
