      What languages can you speak?

      English, Chinese, learning French!

      What extracurricular activities are you involved with on campus?

      I am part of Jazz Band, International Club, I coordinate a community engagement program, and I sometimes write for the school newspaper.

      What are your favorite thing(s) on campus?

      I love being part of jazz band, along with other music-related pursuits, and I love that all my teachers are happy to talk to me about non-academic related topics.

      How does Andover compare to your home?

      I was never part of such a demographically diverse community, and there are many things I would not have been able to do back home, like living in a dorm with a large extent of personal freedom, or chamber music!!

      Briefly talk about an interesting experience you had while visiting another part of the world (if applicable).

      A few years ago, I visited Cambodia, and that was the first time I was in contact with a community that had very limited access to filtered water, children ran around without shoes, and there were few asphalt streets and steel/brick buildings. It made me finally see the bubble I was living in.
