I was born and raised in a small town on the Southeastern coast of China. When I was 15, I came to the US to study by myself and eventually entered the University of Chicago to study art. Over the past four years, I have engaged with the local art scene in various ways and have come to view Chicago as my home. I have worked as a visuals editor and a reporter for a local newspaper, South Side Weekly. I am currently a curatorial intern at the smart museum of arts.
