Hi! I'm a first-year law student from Hong Kong who previously studied at a liberal arts school in California. There, I was involved with student activism and often considered how to make spaces more inclusive of and accessible to students of minority backgrounds. While it is well-established that Cambridge can be quite exclusive and inaccessible, I hope to help BME-identifying Lucians feel empowered to thrive and succeed within our college and in the wider university context. Especially because Lucy is a women's college, I hope to create a space for us BME-identifying women to explore and discuss the unique intersectional issues that each of us face in our varying social and academic contexts.

In my spare time, you will probably find me hiking (or some related outdoor activity), thinking/analyzing/writing/theorizing about social justice issues, or doing some church activity. My dream is to do Everest base camp in Nepal!
