About me: Born and raised in China, my academic journey led me to study Mathematics with Management and Finance at King's College London. However, my path was far from conventional. Before starting my undergraduate in London, I embarked on a transformative semester at an innovative Minerva university in San Francisco, where I dove headfirst into the world of tech startups.

I visited industry giants like LinkedIn and Uber, attending startup conferences, and participating in hackathons. These experiences not only ignited my passion for technology but also cultivated an entrepreneurial mindset within me. I was inspired to curate TEDx events, where I continued to volunteer for "ideas worth spreading" in both San Francisco and London.

Upon arriving in London, one of the world's foremost financial hubs, I dedicated my time to self-discovery. I thrive on adventure and relish the opportunity to try new things. I have a deep-seated love for creativity and problem-solving, and I'm drawn to challenges that remain unanswered and compound over time. This drove me to pursue internships across various sectors, delving into fintech, venture capital, and TMT strategy consulting.

While I continue to explore my career path, my current passions center around corporate finance, private markets, and consulting. I believe in the power of adaptability and lifelong learning and am excited to see where my LBS journey takes me next.
