Fun Facts about Me :)

I'm a world citizen. I was born and raised in Shenzhen (a city next to Hong Kong), and moved to the Bay Area when I was 18. I have briefly resided in Malaysia and Ireland, and have travelled to 15 countries across Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.

I'm also interested in education, modern art, interior design, hip pop dancing and mixology. If you'd like to see my artwork, please come check out my Art Portfolio.
