Hi everyone :) I was born on and raised by Ramaytush Ohlone lands in what is now known to some as San Francisco, and to others as Frisco, 舊金山, the SFC, the City, the 415, the list goes on… My ancestral homes span across southern and central China in Toisan, Nantong, and Wuhan. Growing up during an era of rapid and intense tech industry-driven gentrification, I have always been deeply connected to struggles for place and people power. I believe that the destinies of people, the land, and all forms of life that we share this planet with are conjoined—and that weaving deep interrelationships of care and trust are the key to liberation. In my (regretfully limited) free time, I enjoy journaling, cooking, reading, compiling playlists, and chasing after sunsets. I’m a city kid at heart—the bus is my second bedroom—but I also love the outdoors, most of all the ocean.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
