Best IU experience so far: Surviving I-Core and making lasting friendships with my teammates on Blue Team 6.

My greatest role model and why: My older sister, Jennifer, because of her dedication to helping other people and her work ethic.

Favorite movie and why: Good Will Hunting.† Itís a great story about an underdog who defeats the odds and breaks free of the constraints of his environment (all Disney/Pixar movies are a close second place).

Favorite class at IU and why: L-293 with Professor McCrory because he managed to make learning legal jargon and cases enjoyable and memorable.

Something Iím really passionate about: Getting to meet new people and helping them achieve their goals.

Something that would surprise people about me: I am a dual citizen Ė United States and Taiwan (Republic of China).
