Class Year:

Hometown: Alpharetta, GA 

What's something on your bucket list? 

I have always wanted to live in a different country for more than a year. While I think studying abroad gives an indication of what that might appear as, I believe that there are a lot more intricacies and benefits from living long term in an environment that I am not used to.   

What actor would you cast to play yourself in a movie about yourself and why? 

Steven Yeun, not because he looks like me, but I would be able to meet and talk to a really cool person while the movie is being filmed.   

What's your favorite place you've traveled to and why?  

Taiwan! It's where my family is from, and I once spent a summer teaching English in Nantou, which is a county in Taiwan. Getting to meet locals and eat local Taiwanese cuisine are memories that I look back on fondly.  

What is your proudest accomplishment? 

I came into GT with a lot of self-doubts about who I wanted to be and how GT would influence me. Moving past those self-doubts and mental health issues has definitely been one of my proudest accomplishments to date. I also want to thank my advisor, Jewel Perkins, for helping and guiding me through those difficult times. Thanks Jewel!  

What did you want to be when you were small?  

I watched a lot of “Call of the Wildman” on Animal Planet when I was younger which involved a guy nicknamed "Turtleman" catching snapping turtles with his bare hands near his house. I can't say that I wanted to pursue his exact career, but it certainly influenced my decision in becoming a business major.  

What is your latest book recommendation? 

“Think Again” by Adam Grant. It was recommended to me by one of my favorite professors, Yufei Zhong, and it speaks at length about how people think and learn. How people develop their ideas and motivations fascinates me, and Adam Grant is a great author. If you have any inclination towards questioning your own opinions and challenging others, I highly recommend it.  

My favorite comfort food or family recipe:  

Three cup chicken because it's a core childhood memory and isn't hard to cook.
