Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 22, 2015
Eric White, enrolled student at UGA’s Terry College of Business as Economics Major, is set to apply his bilingual skills with Pearl Bay Consulting Ltd. He is scheduled to arrive in China, Friday May 29th 2015. During his two-month visit, Mr. White’s plans include working for one of the first companies in China after the formation of the EB-5 program. According to website, Pearl Bay (http://eb5support.com/) is known for their gateway to finding Chinese investors through their network.
What's more, Eric is no stranger to China. In April 2011, at the age of 17, Eric was invited by the Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science, and Technology orchestra to translate for students playing at the Yangzhou University concert in Yangzhou, China. This 11-day trip included other translation stops to Shanghai, Beijing, and the Great Wall of China. According to US News and World Report’s website, Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science, and Technology is ranked 1st within Georgia where Eric graduated in 2012.
Eric White was asked to explain how his translation skills would be used while interning with Pearl Bay. He describes, “Chinese speaking natives once translated a menu item known for its delectable taste as ‘burnt corpse of a waterfowl’. He continues, “Although this translation is technically accurate, patrons from America would prefer to read on the menu ‘roast duck’ instead”.
After arriving in China, Mr. White added that his assignment is to accurately translate Mandarin to American English and vice versa with a content focus of grammatical differences, cultural sensitivities and stylistic preferences. He also mentioned that China's Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in Shanghai, Zhuhai, and Shenzhen are hubs of the largest amount of venture capital funding outside of the United States and are set to eclipse domestic investment in venture capital by 2020.
Mr. Eric White is Sponsored by Dr. Katherine McClain who maintains a PHD in Economics from University of California at San Diego and is Senior Lecturer at Terry College of Business. Last week, it was discovered that Eric White needs additional sponsors to complete funding for his trip abroad. Mr. White has a gofundme page (http://gofundme.com/ericwhite2015) where financial assistance can make his trip possible.
Hudson Flynt, author of Reconquer American believes that there is value in mentioning that Eric White is President of the International Business Society at UGA.
