Welcome to my new online home! This will be the space where I explore what it means to live and be your best. I believe we are all meant for awesomeness and I am fascinated by understanding what keeps us from fulfilling that in ourselves.
I’m insatiably interested in topics like productivity, business operations, personal development and anything related to dance parties. You know, the normal stuff.
Why oh why are you starting this blog?
I grew up in a home that frowned upon coloring outside the lines. My parents are Chinese immigrants and they wanted a life that was predictable and stable. They didn’t have it easy when they moved to another country to start a new life.
So they wanted different for me and my sister.
They wanted us to have certainty. They pushed us to get good grades and go down the path of conventionality. They hoped to tell their friends that their daughters were a doctor, lawyer or ____. Unluckily for them, the idea of a conventional “easy” life didn’t sit well with me.
I did things like study Media Studies, Religious Studies and Dance in college. I traveled. I worked with non-profits, arts organizations and social good organizations. I searched high and low for the things that made me come alive. Along the way, I learned to love and accept myself as the way I am- and to trust my gut when it comes to discovering my path.
I’m on a mission to create a world where people are living the truest version of themselves. I’m doing my darn hardest to live that out in my own life first. I am doing it far from perfectly but I am having a lot of fun along the way. I hope you’ll join me in the adventure. Check back for updates!
