I was born in Los Angeles, but grew up in a small town in Georgia, where I learned how to drive a car in a Walmart parking lot and did a lot of other stereotypical stuff you hear people do in the South. I graduated from Duke University with degrees in Economics and English, and worked as a business journalist covering technology and entrepreneurship for national and international publications. Eventually I decided to leave the newsroom to work for startups (and travel). I'm currently in Malaysia, part of a team that is building a new marketing CoE for U.S.-based B2B businesses.
A few things I like outside of work: watching anime, dancing my face off, napping.
Why do I want to be a mentor? My education is the reason for all the amazing opportunities and experiences I've had--and continue to have. It's only possible because my parents, who are immigrants from Taiwan, started a business and succeeded in their pursuit of the American Dream. I'm grateful to them and everyone else who's helped lift me up, and I hope to pay it forward by supporting and encouraging others in as many ways as I can.
