From China Daily News:

Li Zizi, 16, is making the trip because she participated in the Global Young Leaders Conference in New York and Washington this past summer. The program, run by a US-based nonprofit, invites alumni to attend the US presidential inauguration every four years.

Li moved in August to Sichuan province, which was rocked by a 8.0-magnitude earthquake in May that left nearly 90,000 people dead or missing. She now attends the Chengdu Experimental Foreign Language School, which is close to many of the hardest-hit areas.
