Amy Xiao

Toronto, Canada

Hi there! Welcome to the aggregator of my online presence.

In question: I'm Amy, born in Shanghai, been residing in the city of Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto, Canada for the last decade or so. Currently attending the University of Toronto in downtown Toronto where I'm studying computer science and mathematics. Working towards the ambition of merging tech with social change. I'll update again when something exciting comes to fruition.

Me and the world - My burning curiosity of the world, incurable wanderlust, and perhaps overly ambitious aspiration to visit every country in the world prompted me to take a year off from my studies to volunteer/work/travel abroad. From 2012-2013, I had the tremendous pleasure of learning about and being immersed in the beauty that is Peruvian culture and experience the craziness of Shanghai. I've also had the privilege of safari-ing in Kenya, performing in various countries in Europe, and visiting the US over the years.

The people I've come across on my journey have shaped the person I am today, and for that, I am eternally grateful. Feel free to find me on Couchsurfing and let's chat!

Fascinations and aspirations - What makes people tick, innovation, start-ups, programming, classical piano, languages, dogs, design, knowledge

Motto: "Bite more than you can chew, then chew like hell."

Contacting me: I'm always down to meet new people and to learn what they're working on. Feel free to connect with me via email/Twitter and let's chat!
