Three Things About Me (You Didn’t Know) 

  1. Mandarin, Chinese is my second language that I speak fluently.
  2. Scandinavian is one of my favourite interior design styles.
  3. I am currently in my penultimate year at university studying Dentistry.

Q&A (Me)

  1. What is your favourite childhood memory? 
    Playing in the back garden, chasing hover flies in dreamlike, mild English summers (when relatives would come visit us).

2. If you could change the past, would you? 
Even though I think changing the past would change who I was today – that is inevitable, I would still say yes. If I could change the past, I would be more open about and express my feelings and thoughts. I would be bolder and do what I wanted to do – take studying less seriously, study what I loved and have more fun.

3. What is your favourite quote? 
I have many quotes I like. One of my favourites is the Serenity Prayer,

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.”

by American Evangelical theologian Reinhold Niebuhr. Whether you, or I believe in God is irrelevant (omit the “God”, if you don’t).

This is one of my favourite quotes because it encapsulates the essence of meaning in life – acceptance in love, strength in courage and wisdom in grace. I think learning to let go of things as well as changing ourselves requires a lot of strength, and only comes with experience of life – living.

4. What scares you? 
Ending up in a mundane 9-5 job that I hate, in the rat race for the wrong reasons, living an uninspired life, chasing the wrong things and not getting out. I think there are two types of fear – fear that makes you powerless and immobilizes you into inaction, and fear that propels you to strive for better and makes you powerful (I hope I’d choose the latter). I believe it is up to you what you take from fear, as with anything in life.

5. What is your goal in life? 
To be successful – to live a life of self-expression, to inspire and uplift people, and have positive impact on peoples’ lives through writing (my One Thing 1).
