About Me

Hiyah!

CURRENT MISSION

Make time from my undergraduate studies to travel and connect with people interested in making a meaningful acquaintanceship/friendship.

ABOUT ME

These days, I'm often found trekking across the UC Santa Cruz campus with its many hills and forested paths, biking through town on bright coastal days, or perusing the poetry section of the local bookstore.

PHILOSOPHY

“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.” - Oscar Wilde
