How did you get interested in global issues?
According to Anne-Marie Slaughter, the world is comprised of the chessboard where states aim for dominance and the web where networks matter. It is interesting to see how countries interact with each other in this increasingly complex world.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I want to contribute my part in advocating for the reduction of global poverty because of my experience in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, where I had the opportunity to engage in volunteer work at a local village school. It was as unforgettable as it was heartening to see what we did could bring a smile to the childrens’ faces.

Any interesting tidbits to share?

  1. I love to sing classical songs. I sing in a choir (I am a soprano!)
  2. I enjoy playing the piano and have played for many years.
  3. I hope to be trilingual (I am fluent in English and Chinese and am currently learning French!)
  4. I enjoy travelling to other places to learn about history and other cultures, and I like to write about things that I am passionate about.
  5. I love animals, especially cute animals like dogs.
