Stanford has been a journey of enormous self-discovery for me.

Stanford has been a journey of enormous self-discovery for me. I’ve experienced ebbs and flows, at times biting off more than I could chew. Then I studied abroad in Beijing, where I had a chance to put my language skills from 13 years of studying Mandarin to the test.

I did a Stanford Bing Overseas Study Program externship at a venture capital firm and realized I really liked business. The experience brought me back to the passionate mindset I had upon arriving at Stanford.
