Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in Beijing, China, and I immigrated to sunny California when I was 15 with my parents and younger brother. Growing up I've been lucky enough to have visited around 20 countries and over (an estimated) 70 museums, and it is within these museum walls that I uncovered my love and passion for art and art history. I am currently a second-year student at UCSB double majoring in Econ and Art history, and I'm thinking of switching to Econ & Accounting instead of just Econ. A fun fact about me is that my favorite snack is cucumber flavored Lays chips! :) 


Interesting Factoid

I played the accordion when I was in kindergarten/elementary, and I also took lessons in abacus mental calculation when I was little
