I was born and raised in Shanghai and transplanted myself to Austin
in 2000. This journey has been one of constant self-inquiry. After
obtaining a degree in finance and working as a financial analyst in
the corporate world I realized that I wanted to pursue something
more fulfilling. I decided to take a risk, listened to my heart,
enrolled in yoga teacher training, and applied for graduate school.
Now I have a masters degree in Global Policy Studies, work
full-time for the City of Austin, and teach weekly yoga classes to
feed my soul. I am grateful for this amazing life and look forward
to the unfolding of what has yet to come.
What I’m doing with my life
I am beginning to learn what I truly want in life but at the same
time I cannot help but remain in wonder at the infinite
possibilities the universe has to offer.
I’m really good at
making genuine connections with people. Perceived differences are
only surface-deep. We are all connected and we are all One.
The first things people usually notice about me
the sparkle in my eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
the unbearable lightness of being, things fall apart, one hundred
years of solitude, the queen of spades, the metamorphosis, the
power of now, the glass castle, the lives of others, snow falling
The six things I could never do without
yoga, meditation, kindness, sunshine, intuition, intimacy, and
sushi makes 7
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to do the tremendously challenging but equally rewarding work
on myself so that I can be of better service to others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Yogaing, dancing, or hanging out with close friends at a wine bar.
However I would be content with an indulgent bubble bath and a good
book every once a while too...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a crush on David Whyte and I indulge in all the ways his
words move my heart and touch my spirit.
