ECHO LUJournalism major, Class of 2014; Music minor

I studied Journalism at Indiana University Bloomington, with a minor in Music. I graduated from IU in winter 2014. I come from China, and I speak Mandarin. I earned a Certificate of Chinese News Broadcasting in high school. I am a singer, piano player, dancer and cook. Most important, I am a journalist.

I was involved in so many things on and off campus! I am the founder and former president of D.Force Dancing & Entertainment Club, we have 100+ dancers from 5 different countries, and we do Hip-Hop, lyrical jazz, ballet, breaking, popping, MJ, Chinese folk dance. We are the first place winner of cultural performance at IU World's Fare 2012 and second place winner in 2013. I was secretary of Blazors Studio, a group of non-major students who love photography and videography. I am a volunteer of Asian Culture Center. I also perform solo singing in ACC events.

I was staff photographer at Indiana Daily Student and Arbutus Yearbook. I am an intern at Indy Asian American Times as a reporter and photographer. I was a photographer and web researcher at Upashion.com online college fashion magazine. I was a summer internship at Girls Inc. of Monroe County, a nonprofit organization to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold.   

I am a very active international student of our campus and community, and am excited to share some of my experience with you!
