I’m a graduating junior majoring in Biology and Environmental Science and Policy. Born and raised in Singapore, At heart, I'm a tropical animal and South-East Asia will always remain home regardless of the current biome I inhabit. In my free time, I can be found developing my wildlife photography skills or indoor climbing at the cost of forsaking homework. I spent a summer in Costa Rica, a semester studying abroad in South Africa, and a semester at the Duke Marine Lab. In the future, I hope to remain in the field for graduate studies.
