Amber's Personal Story
I was born and raised in Long Island. When I was 5 years old, my parents started me in violin lessons and karate. At age 7, I switched from karate to dance, swim and also picked up piano. During this time I was also enrolled in Chinese school. I continued these extracurriculars until the start of middle school where I dropped dance, and in 10th grade, I dropped piano. In my free time. I love baking and cooking. Usually I put on Stephanie Soo (I am obsessed with true crime) and during the pandemic I started listening to the h3 podcast. In highschool I would routinely listen to the h3 podcast and Stephanie as I did homework, which was a horrible idea. I have since been able to stop this habit and only catch up on them on weekends, meal breaks and during chores. On that note, I also strangely like doing chores, mostly because its a time when I can freely listen to the podcast and Stephanie without feeling guilty.
Amber's Hobbies, Passions & Interests
My hobbies include baking/cooking, journaling, snowboarding and doing my nails. Whenever I was stressed (with enough time) I would cook something up to take my mind off of whatever was stressing me out. I enjoy cooking more than baking, because I love how flexible cooking is. I love getting creative and imagining which flavor profiles go together in my mind. Will i cook/bake, I would put on podcast/Stephanie, but I would also at times binge shows like The Glory, Lucifer, Stranger Things, Georgia and more. I also had a period in time where I would also binge kdramas. I have watched: He is Psychometric, The Legend of the Blue Sea, Weightlifting Fairy, Strongwoman, Hotel del Luna and the cdrama The Untamed, I also enjoyed these dramas and podcasts/videos as I did my nails. For me, doing my own nails (acrylics, gel) is incredibly therapeutic and I get to be creative with them. Following this note, this was the same case for journaling. I would enjoy the above forms of entertainment as I bullet-journaled, following AmandaRachLee’s monthly format and doodles. I would also watch anime simultaneously. I watched Naruto, AOT(some), Demon Slayer, Jujutsu Kaisen (still watching), Food Wars, HxH, Jojo, My Hero(some) and One Piece (some).
I would describe my personality as chill. I am usually the friend that my friends go to to rant and seek emotional support. I don’t like making assumptions on people and especially don't like rumors so my philosophy is to form your own opinions about other people. I believe that you should meet and interact with said person in addition to what you've been told, and only then can you make a decision on what you think of that person. Even then, I like to keep in mind that some people may change and circumstances. However, once you get to really know me, I become unhinged and chaotic.
Amber's Sense of Humor
Childish jokes, being facetious, vine.
Amber's Proudest Moment
My proudest moment would be seeing my brother making his first fried rice and seeing how happy my mother and grandparents were for him, how proud they were of him, and how proud of himself he was. Teaching my brother to be resourceful and freely use his creativity to make lunch for himself because I would be going off to college filled me with a sense of pride and fulfillment. Not to mention, the fried rice he made was really good.
Amber's Perfect Day
A perfect day would be one with everything completed and so I get to spend a day fully with my family and friends. To further elaborate, it would be a day in which I would not have to worry about any upcoming assignments/exams or anything relating to academics for the future. That way, I can spend a day fully enjoying the moment with my friends and family.
