Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
For some reason I have an urge to start with "multidisciplinary
individual seeking a position that will harbor self-growth..." but
no, that belongs to the resume that I need to update. The summary
section is usually the hardest to write yet this is the first thing
they ask you to write. :/
Better start from the beginning then. I'm originally from Taiwan,
and have lived in Schaumburg (suburb of Chicago), Fullerton (part
of O.C.) and now here in the Bay Area. I don't think I'm a suburban
girl even though it seems that way. Moving around makes it that
much harder to make friends which is why I'm here. My friends would
say that I'm funny, intellectually curious, and easy-going. In a
dorky kind of way, I might add.
I work in the city for an investment management firm. We manage
institutional funds. It's only natural for a dorky girl who's good
with numbers to go on this track.

Books... Currently reading "Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science
and Sex". Mary Roach cracks me up. I like nonfiction that are based
on real events, such as "Billionaire's Vinegar", "Too Big to Fail",
and "When Genius Failed".
Movies... A good movie will either provoke deep thoughts, or make
me feel warm and fuzzy, e.g. "Mulholland Drive", "Inception", and
"Up". Love documentaries too, the most recent one being "Inside
Food... Chinese, Japanese, Italian. My cooking is between "eh" and
"mmm" but I do make something good sometimes (I'm surprised too!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Friends & Family (my support system)
2) Seasons (change of scene is invigorating)
3) Good Manners (deliberately disregard them sometimes is ok. But
one has to have them to begin with. Otherwise you're just
4) Laughter (mine or someone else's)
5) Good Health (you'll miss it when it's gone)
I can probably live without my phone. I observe radio silence
Sunday whenever I could.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
