What brought you to AIS?

What brought me to AIS was Hong Kong. I had previously visited Hong Kong a few times in the past and enjoyed all the energy and excitement that it offers. But what sets it apart from other cities is all of the nature that surrounds it. I like being outdoors and I enjoy the hyper activity of a city, so I knew I would be excited to move to a city like this.

What is your favorite thing about "being at" AIS?

AIS is a school that is full of hard-working, honest people. The administration and teachers all seem to enjoy what they do and the message that they convey is truthful and authentic. I appreciate and am grateful to be at a school that has this kind of integrity.

Who inspires you? Why?

My family inspires me. They advocate my lifestyle of being abroad, they appreciate the value in time outside of work, they are grateful for what they have, and they are helpful to those around them.

What are passions you explore outside your career?

I enjoy outdoor activities such as running, hiking, basketball, baseball, roller blading, and ultimate frisbee. I also like learning how to play instruments and cooking.

What's in your lunchbox today?

Salad. Not an exciting answer.
