Tell us About Yourself​

I’m Julia from Shanghai! I am very passionate about walking around at night, cloud gazing, and eating slim jims. I’m the youngest child (I have a brother and a sister), and I love annoying my siblings. Living in Shanghai, my favorite thing to do was to eat the amazingly cheap food and explore the city. As a child, my favorite pastime was watching 喜洋洋与灰太狼 (You’re a real one if you know this show. I also really enjoy baking and cooking, although I can’t really cook or bake. In high school, I always thought that I would major in something related to the humanities, but I ended up pivoting to more STEM-related stuff in my junior and senior years, so here I am! I have two dogs named Taffy and Deedo, an anonymous turtle, and a few fish as pets back home. My most embarrassing childhood story was when I was in fourth grade, I got impaled by a toothpick in my leg. We were in arts and crafts, and I knelt on the toothpick-covered floor and got impaled. This year, I hope to push myself out of my comfort zone, meet new people, and chase after more opportunities—both in academic and non-academic contexts.

 

With all that said, here are a few fun facts: I have latent tuberculosis, ADHD, and a herniated disc in my lumbar. Random items that I enjoy: dogs, ginger tea, raw onions, hot showers, oatmeal, and laying on the floor.

Hobbies/interests/passions?

My heart is in the work. Just kidding. I like to explore new places, eat new foods, and go Costco shopping.

What are some things you can't live without? 

I cannot live without my Old Spice® deodorant. Every morning when I put it on, I am reminded to break gendered norms, slay the patriarchy, and attend my 8 am classes.

What are your college and career goals? 

My short-term goals are to do well in my classes, attend club meetings, meet people and explore industries that I want to work in. My long-term goals are to ultimately work in a data-related field.

What do you look for in a potential big sister?
Who do you look up to most? Why?
What kind of personalities do you get along with?
What is a moment or achievement you're proud of?
What qualities do you value in a person?
What do you hope to gain from the new member process of Kappa Phi Lambda?

I look for someone who is daring, spontaneous, and dangerously enabling. This may not be healthy, but I am a huge enabler and I love being around people who have the same chaotic mindset. I want a relationship where we can both do stupidly fun things together, push each other to be better people, chase the bag, and be positive menaces to society.

I look up to my grandmother the most. She survived a tumultuous time in Chinese history, is a woman in STEM (professor of math), and is a perfect example of a lifelong learner. I look up most to her resilience, curiosity, and determination.

I love people who are outgoing, fun, and playful. I also love being around people who enjoy challenges and push me to be better in daily life. I think I clash the most with overly controlling and judgmental personalities. As a relatively easy-going person, I don’t like it when people are overly assertive since I feel stifled when people try to impose their opinions on me.

One time I ate an entire cheesecake factory meal (portion sizes are huge).

I value people who are driven and unafraid to chase their goals and don’t mind being judged.

I hope to develop meaningful relationships with more members and learn more about life from each person that I meet in the process!
