I am a first-year from the SF Bay Area, interested in politics, history, language, and IR, specifically that of South and East Asia.
I am also a meme, video game, music, and book enjoyer.
In my free time, I like reading material such as: memes, twitter posts, my own twitter bangers, and much more.
I also can be very sarcastic so if anything down there makes you do a double-take, don't worry about it.
