Hire me

I'm a 21-year-old business major (ex-architecture student) trying to figure out what I want to do in life (but honestly, don't we all?). I'm a real sucker for adventures - as of now my pursuits are more or less university-related. I just recently came back from my exchange semester in Seoul, and prior to that I also went on an international internship in Croatia. I enjoy being in multi-cultural environments, hence these picks. Currently, I'm interning at The Border Collective.

Now on to the more personal. I appreciate both traditional and digital design and crafts. My heart can't help but feel giddy whenever I watch people do calligraphy or whenever I stumble upon some good typography. I also enjoy watching artists and craftsmen do their thing (worth mentioning: glass artisans). As for my own outlet, I like experimenting on Photoshop and DIY-ing anything that involves stationery supplies. I am /obsessed/ with stationery supplies.

I enjoy learning new things. I like getting into new hobbies, watching various tutorials, and trying out extreme activities. As of now, my favorite hobbies include baking, iPhone photography + videography, creating montage, and outdoor activities. I am also an avid reader of random Wikipedia articles (did you know that the color we see in total darkness isn't black but "eigengrau"?) and book summaries. Shows like How It's Made are my favorite, next to cooking shows, not-so-typical reality shows, and your mainstream dramas and comedies.

I absolutely love going to new places. One of my biggest life goals is to travel around the world and be immersed in every culture I get to know. Hopefully I get to visit all countries in the world before I die, including the area of Antarctica.

I also like meeting new people - whether for professional or casual connections. I like talking about anything under the sun - it's a sure way to learn something. I could either be that person you talk to about life and the mysteries of the universe, or that one you discuss ideas with on brand marketing, or that one you rant to about how GoT is taking too long to return on TV.

Hit me up through my social links below! As I said, I'm trying to figure out what I want to do in life so I'm really open to opportunities. Or let's be friends! Professional and casual connections are welcome.
