What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? I was at a stage where I felt like what I knew about the industry I wanted to work in was so insufficient, and I need some more guidance and hard skills to equip myself to be more prepared for the “real world”. The MSLCE program’s specifically tailored curriculum and the professional development guidance and support were very appealing to me.

Favorite (song/movie/show/festival/exhibition … )? KPop Group GOT7! 

What are you most looking forwards to about the MSLCE program? All winter quarter classes on finance, business model and revenue strategy (I need some hard skills), and the Spring Break Industry Immersion Trek.

What is your favorite Chicago landmark/attraction, or what are you most excited to visit? Skydeck – love the skyline view and the feeling of thrill looking down the glass.

If you could have lunch with one person, who would it be? My high school liberal studies teacher Eudora, who inspired me to live up my dream and be in the creative industries, but sadly passed away two years ago.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? Los Angeles, CA

Where are you from? Hong Kong
