Hi, I’m Albert! I’m a 21 year-old, second-generation Chinese American boy. I like taking walks, playing the otamatone, calligraphy, and imaging what it would be like to be in a relationship :’-)
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in the Bay Area but am currently attending UC Irvine in the sunny Orange County.
What do you do?
I’m a student studying psychology and social behavior. I currently intern as a life coach at our counseling center helping fellow undergrads set goals, manage time, and conquer any personal or social hurdles.
What are you passionate about?
I love developing intimate friendships with my peers which lends itself well into my career goals. Making others smile is definitely a big one But other than that, I’m a huge anime and manga fan. Oh and I like Lady Gaga kind of a lot.
What is your dream job (real or fantasy)?
My DREAM job is to be a scribe because I love the act of physically writing, but that’s sort of an outdated profession. I would love to enter the helping profession, and ideally I would provide psychological counseling at a four-year institutions to struggling students.
If you could change the world with one idea, what would it be?
Be kind to yourself!! You’re allowed to make mistakes and grow from them.
