Although I was born and raised in Vancouver as a first-generation Chinese Canadian, I moved back to my parent’s hometown in tropical Hainan, China, and lived there for several years before returning to Canada. I am a UBC Geography and Migration & Globalization Studies alumna, and before I had the privilege of serving the College’s international community, I worked for the UBC Equity and Inclusion Office, Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies Program, and the Faculty of Arts Vancouver Summer Program. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, visual storytelling through film, cooking, and a good workout.
