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 in 2020. On campus, I design/create content for the branding team of EPIC, Northwestern's largest entrepreneurship club, and write about entrepreneurship for the Northwestern Business Review. I'm also a part of the marketing and media committee for A&O Productions, the student-run entertainment programming board. I was also involved with North by Northwestern as the Director of Ad Sales and a writer/coder for the interactive section.
