I was born in Hong Kong, and I immigrated to the U.S. when I was three. I adopted the American culture at a young age, but have never forgotten my native language or culture. I still speak Cantonese fluently and cook foods that originated from my homeland. Most importantly, I have also developed my own identity between the two cultures.
I am currently studying at Baruch College where I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Statistics and Quantitative Modeling. I decided to major in statistics because statistics is not just about numbers but rather about the context behind the numbers. I also like how statistics can give a snapshot of anything no matter the size. In the future, I would like to use statistics in a business field to help companies solve internal and external issues. I have had internship experience as a Wealth Management Intern at Morgan Stanley, where I used my analytical skills to help financial advisors discover profitable opportunities. I have also worked in non-profit organizations such as Goodwill Industries and Socrates Sculpture Park, where I was able to develop my communication skills.
Through ANY, I hope to gain technical skills that will prepare me for the job market. I also hope to learn from a network of ANY Mentor Coaches and Fellows who are from different backgrounds. I plan to use all that I learn to continue to develop and grow, while also helping others.
