Are you sure this isn't some crush?
Lol, platonic relationship? Even in the best case scenario that would be very improbable. Plus I really don't think this would be a good idea. In the event that you did manage to go out with her, there would be shocking effects. Like I know for a fact that your parents being Chinese, would probably disown you, or it would start discrediting rumours about you sleeping with the lecturer to get good marks.
Therefore, the only sane conclusion is to talk to more girls at your age, and hope this thing passes.
