Hi there, and welcome to my blog!
I hail from Detroit, Michigan, and I have a deep fondness for anyone who's a Midwestern Mammoth, or a Taiwanese Mammoth (as I am Taiwanese). My hometown is exactly 662 miles away from Amherst College, so moving here has been a big adjustment; sometimes I find myself missing home and the flat "plains" that I once vehmently (and metaphorically) spat on. BUT, I've been really enjoying my time here, and I can't wait to tell you all about it!
I'm a freshman and a prospective computer science major. I'll see where the winds of academia take me; I might try a double major, or just dabble in every subject!
At Amherst, I sing in the chorus, am a Questbridge Scholar and Meikeljohn Fellow, try to participate in various clubs like Arting Club and Amherst Christian Fellowship, and try to go to as many events as possible. There's always talks happening, meetings with departments and resource centers, and free food somewhere on campus. Music and theater and dance (performing arts, really) are dear to my heart, so I love attending concerts and shows too! I write both creatively and in my journal; I try to go to the gym as often as I can muster enough motivation to (which, as of right now, is usually never), and I love reading (this is a hint for recommendations). I work for Reader to Reader as a reading mentor to K-12 students, and I also work for Student Security! Wherever you see me on campus, you'll catch me with a song in my head and my phone in my hand--I take pictures of everything.
Some More Facts:
1. I have an identical twin sister! Sadly, she's three inches taller than me. Also, she can handle spice better than I can. How did that happen, biologists?
2. We have a mini Australian Shepherd (black tri colored) named Aiko! He's super cute.
3. My favorite author is Jane Austen. My favorite books are "Sense and Sensibility" by Jane Austen and "Anne of Green Gables" by L. M. Montgomery.
4. My favorite movie is "You Are the Apple of My Eye." It's a Taiwanese movie that I grew up watching. I also love "Crazy Rich Asians" and "Hindi Medium." My favorite TV shows are "The Good Place" and "Doctor Who." My favorite drama of all time is "Sky Castle." You should definitely check those out when you want to relax!
