1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I’m pretty much an open book, I like to share my emotions and my experience through social media platforms. If there is something that not too many people know about, it's that I actually spent most of my life in China. I grew up there with a completely different culture than America. English was not my first language, and many people that I meet through social media are actually really surprised by my accent. I am a huge sucker for anime, and Korean drama, and rather than going on all the time as it seems like on my instagram, I actually stay home and nap as much as I can. I love music, though I don’t post any of my mixes on my social media. I have been DJing on the side as a way to make some quick cash while being able to do something I enjoy.
2. What are your biggest passions?
My biggest passion is my love for fashion. The world of both designing and modeling fascinates me. Fashion has not only empowered me to try new things but it also built my confidence throughout. Growing up, I suffered from low self esteem, until I started styling myself in high school. I was able to embrace who I am and what I am about simply from a few pieces of clothing, and my style brought confidence into my life. I’ve loved fashion ever since.
3. What are your goals for the future?
My goal for the future is to first most definitely get my MBA before anything else. Though I’m going to be constantly growing my brand on social media while going to college, eventually I would like to move back to China and pursue a career in International Business Exchange. Like I mentioned, I grew up in China and was actually raised by my grandparents until I was 10 years old. I would like to live there with them for as long as possible taking care of them as much as I can while working in China. As of right now, I would like to just focus on getting my master in Business and also creating quality content on both Youtube and Instagram.
4. What is your definition of success?
My definition of success is being able to wake up according to my own schedule rather than a given time. Being challenged mentally rather than physically. Being able to give back without receiving. Being able to help anyone and everyone with absolutely no concerns.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
So currently I am actually trying to grow my Youtube channel. I’m not quite sure which direction I want to go with it, so I am actually trying out everything. Vlogs, makeup, lifestyle, you name it. At the same time, I just want to have fun and enjoy this beautiful life I am living in.
