Current Location: London, UK
Background: Born in China, partially raised there then got uprooted and replanted in Canada, this Chinese-Canadian girl has since been in love with globe-trotting and cultural-immersion. Having studied in France for a year, I then settled in for another year in one of the most rural places in Japan, 5 minutes from the coast that stretches out into the endless Japanese Pacific. From 2013 to 2015, I was toiling away at a double Masters Degree. I chose it mainly because it allowed me to live in Beijing and London. Since graduating, I have remained in wet, wild London. Hunan, China will always be my home, and so will Vancouver, Canada. But I am a citizen of the world.
Hobbies: Reading, swimming, shower singing, silly dancing, collecting all things corny and warm, talking, blogging, plotting mischief.
