Filmmaker 

Filmmaking is a constant learning process. Each story is an exploration of characters and worlds that could be a reflection of your own experience or a unique journey that allows you to better understand the lives of others. 

My experience growing up in China and going to ISB has shaped me as a filmmaker, and the blend of cultures continues to be an integral part of my directorial style.

I hope to use my platform to share my journey and experience in the hope of inspiring and motivating others to follow their passion – no  matter what it is, no matter how different it may be, or how challenging it may be.  

My time at ISB was characterized by striving for excellence both in the classroom and in the pool.

Author 

Literature is history, so as an author, I hope to bear witness and document this era as we live through it. My work strives to examine what it means to live as a human, what empathy is, how resilient the spirit can be, and, most of all, what pushes us to keep going.  

One of the most important things I gained from my years at ISB is the ability to see from different perspectives and respect each and every one of them.

Clinical fellow, Boston Children's Hospital

As a neonatologist in-training, I provide medical care to seriously ill newborns in the neonatal intensive care unit.  

ISB taught me the importance of intellectual curiosity, hard work, and community. Some of my most meaningful friendships have been with ISB class members, who have been huge supports in my personal and professional life, even when we are spread out all over the world.
