Project Industry: Education
Favorite quote: "Stop worrying about missed opportunities and start looking for new ones." - I. M. Pei
I was born in Taiwan and moved to the U.S. at the age of five. I was never told I had to be a doctor or a lawyer despite the stereotypes. Instead, my parents wanted me to find what I enjoyed, so I grew up always needing a creative outlet. Drawn to anything about art and design, I was determined to be able to use my imagination and make something out of it. My artistic journey led me down many paths, and eventually, I found interior design. I am glad to be able to have found something that interests me. I don’t know where life will lead me, but I’m so happy it has led me here.
