Abstract [en]

This study aims to explore the personal changes of Chinese youth from their working holiday experiences in New Zealand. By drawing on semi-structured interviews, this study recruited thirty-four Chinese working holiday makers (WHMs) in New Zealand. A modified thematic analysis was adopted to analyze the interview transcriptions. Five themes have been developed, including independence, bravery, tolerance, marriage attitudes, and friends making. The findings of this study demonstrate the complexities and multi-dimensions of Chinese WHMs? personal changes during their working holiday experiences and contribute to the literature by delving into the relationship between these personal changes and the social-cultural context in which they are from. The findings also offer insightful suggestions for future studies.
