Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born and raised in the western part of China (bonus point for
guessing it right; hint: the place with really spicy food), but I
speak perfect English and don't have an accent if you were to talk
to me :) Inspired after a high school exchange program to Tulsa,
Oklahoma, I decided to come here for college. At 18 and with two
suitcases, I arrived from a random place in China at a random U.S.
state to start college (guess, a small liberal arts school in
Vermont). I spent 4 years in a very close-knit community in the
middle of no where, developing meaningful and genuine friendships.
Even now every time I visit Vermont, I feel that warm fuzzies and
miss every day I spent there.
After college, I moved down to Boston to work at a consulting firm.
I enjoy spending time with college friends, making new connections
and discovering what I truly want to pursue professionally: not
consulting, haha. I am a really active guy. I enjoy travel a lot,
whether it's a vacation to Hawaii, a weekend getaway or a day trip
to a nearby ski mountain. I am pretty adventurous and willing to
try new fun things to do. I also wouldn't mind just staying in,
making some dinner, watching a movie or binge on some
Next stop? Looks like I will be in school for two years in Chicago.
I am excited about the move but feel sad to leave New England. I
look forward to embark on a new chapter of my life.
