Author Bio

I come from a traditional Chinese family, growing up in a beautiful water city in East China as the only child. I went to Chinese schools up until 11th grade and was lucky enough to spend 2 years after that in a gorgeous Welsh castle with UWC Atlantic College. That opens up a door to a whole new world, and thus I begin my dream to become a globally minded traveler and learner. Right now I am a sophomore student at Duke University, stressed but motivated and challenged constantly. I am enjoying every minute of my college life and am curious where the future might take me.
