What do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy drawing and applying henna tattoos, especially during cultural and religious celebrations. I am also a pho fanatic; I love trying new pho restaurants and discovering their best dishes!

Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.

During my semester abroad in China, I traveled to Beijing where I got to experience one of the new seven wonders of the world- The Great Wall of China! One of the most memorable aspects of this trip was that after climbing up hundreds of stairs, I got to slide down the Great Wall on the toboggan slide.
