My online “mask”.

I’m a swimmer, but I haven’t been in the swimming pool for a long time. When I was a child, I really enjoyed playing with water and chose swimming as a special subject. However, over time, it made me feel that “water” is no longer the same as before. The harder the water is pushed away, the harder it becomes to control its “unknown”.

Nowadays, my light is as small and difficult as a firefly, but I am also striving to flicker.


In 2021, I received my BA in Social Sciences from East Los Angeles College and at the same time, I transferred to NYU, where I also received a grant sponsored by the Advanced Quality Data Provider. Currently, I am a socioeconomics student at New York University.

Wil Rogers State Beach

On Feb 7th in the US, I decided to visit this beach to find solace before the 6.5-hour drive back to N. California. Watching waves, seagulls, and hearing joyful beachgoers eased me. The Pacific barrier, busy with vehicles, flaunted stunning mountain views. Assisting a family locked out of their car, I witnessed a breathtaking sunset, an endless yellow hue, reminiscent of “China,” my hometown.
