I am currently taking BA Political Science at the University of the Philippines. It is my hope in the future to be a lawyer and a clinical psychologist so I can provide service to people in any way that I can. Working in this organization, I will be able to do that. Growing up, I only learned to speak Mandarin and Filipino. It is unfortunate that I have never learned to speak Hokkien as this is important in the Chinese-Filipino community. Being part of Lannang Archives gives me an opportunity to learn more about the language that I should have known and spoken as I was growing up. This provides a way for me to understand myself more, and hopefully as I go through that process, I will be able to help someone who is the same as me.
