Personal Statement:

I am interested in Asian American diasporas in the Midwest and their quests to recreate homeland in the heartland.

Aside from the time dedicated to pursuing a PhD, I enjoy spending my time with a Diet Coke, exploring local businesses for Yelp reviews, singing along to kpop, and occasionally taking a *not staged* Instagram post.
