About Me


Experience all there is out there, Into The Wild!


Growing up as a suburbanite of the greater metropolitan Chicago area, I was heavily divided between my identity as an American child and a Chinese immigrant. Sheltered and focused on academia and my future career, I never got the chance to see the world for what it is worth. Now, given the opportunity to study abroad, I plan on rediscovering what it truly means to "know the place for the first time".


The freedom and simple beauty is too good to pass up...
