Born in LA, I grew up in Kaohsiung, Taiwan and attended Morrison Academy Kaohsiung, a small K-12 school of about 200 people, and was a part of the first graduating high school class there. During this process, I found my love for starting and working on small projects in unstructured environments. As a new class, we were the pioneers and guinea pigs of the high school, and I loved it.
My passion for journalism was sparked in ninth grade, when I moved to Irvine, CA, through the school newspaper there. When I returned to MAK for sophomore year, I started the school newspaper, the SharkPost. Starting from scratch wasn't easy; designing the layout, finding sponsors, and recruiting and training willing writers from the two high school grades we had so far took immense time and effort. However, this only furthered my interest in journalism, design, and entrepreneurship (in starting projects).
Now, I'm majoring in journalism and minoring in business institutions and design at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, and will graduate after Fall 2019. I'm currently the Editor-in-Chief for ANet Chicago, a nonprofit focused on highlighting accomplishments in the Asian American professional community. I also am a writer for China HIVE, a startup with the vision of introducing China's startup ecosystem to the world.
On campus, I am the marketing manager for NU|Tutors, a student-run business operated by Student Holdings, write about entrepreneurship for the Northwestern Business Review, design/create content for EPIC, Northwestern's largest entrepreneurship club, and am also a part of the marketing and media committee for A&O Productions, the student-run entertainment programming board.
Currently, I've fallen in love into data visualization, user experience design, blockchain technology, and marketing. I'm a huge believer of interactive storytelling and democratizing content—making news and media more digestible and accessible to all.
