About Me:
I grew up in Chinatown of Chicago and went to school on the South Side. Going to college in a rural town is both an interesting and challenging experience for me but it is definitely enjoyable. I don't have a favorite food/dish, but I love playing soccer and enjoy cooking. My favorite television show is currently Castle and Perception and I enjoy most genres of music, although I am still quite picky. My all-time favorite thing to do is to learn about other people's and country's culture so that I can expand my knowledge of these different cultures and partake in spreading them.
