Adopted from China by Quebecers, I have been raised in Montreal where I currently am completing my first year of CEGEP in Health Sciences. Mental health and well-being have always been close to my heart since I constantly strive for a healthy balance of community involvement, academics, extracurriculars and sports. I consider my Canadian life to be a blessing, thus, I am truly passionate about giving back to others by providing free extracurricular activities to kids of a public elementary school in my local town. I have also launched a fundraiser to finance educational tools for the kids of Siddhi Ganesh Public Elementary School in Kathmandu. I believe education is definitely a way to increase happiness as it unlocks one’s doors and broadens one’s opportunities to find purpose and meaning.
