Before you leave, I would love to share with you something that you might not have a chance to discover from my work, which is my future goal and proudest achievement.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or even share with me your goal and achievement! It was great to know you.
My goal “sustainable happiness” is to “be happy, and not regret my own choices”.When I was a freshman I knew what I wanted, so I planned out courses I want to take and extra courses for my minor. I minor in communication design as I knew I won’t be satisfied only becoming a business student, but understanding from the perspectives of designers.
I am most proud of being a role model as the oldest sister in my family. I have one younger sister Joyce and brother Anthony. They
often look for advice from me when she faces important decisions in her life. Being the oldest sister in the family, I’m always seeking to support my siblings whenever they need me, because I love them!
