My Bio

As a writer, polyglot, and international relations enthusiast, I love exploring different cultures among diverse populations, both in my native Washington, D.C. area and abroad.  My experiences, including writing for a Chinese newspaper and conducting research in Latin America, have deepened my passion for understanding how cultures, political systems, and economies interact and shape each other.  I enjoy exploring my interests through blogging, photography, and public speaking, and am always looking to investigate new areas and issues around the world.
