Favorite color?: Pink.
Favorite food?: Chicken & rice; it’s my Asian background.

What's your opinion on…
Abortion: I believe that it is the woman’s decision whether she wants to keep her child or not. Because women have the choice, I’m sitting here typing this. My birthmother gave me up when I was about 6 months old. I am so grateful for the fact that I’m here, alive. In most cases I am against abortion in a way, but I feel that no matter what, the woman needs to make that decision. It’s her body, not the governments'.
Homosexual people: I really don’t care… they are the same people but with different preferences. I have a few friends that are homosexual and it hasn’t bothered me once. Love is love; and it comes in so many beautiful ways.
Labels: If you want to spend 50 dollars on a shirt, do it. I used to be one of those girls that spent tons of money on the "cool" clothes; Abercrombie, Aeropostle, American Eagle… but when I’d wear them to school, I looked just like everyone else. I’d rather be original and spend less on comfortable clothes… labels are what people go by, individuality is what you should have.
Smoking: is disgusting. But I don’t hate it. I spend a lot of time bowling, I’m a geek, and I always stink like an ashtray. I don’t care if you smoke, just don’t blow it in my face.
Drinking: I have spent many summers finding myself passed out at on stranger’s couch. Sophomore and junior year was my "experimental" year… I have changed since then and I’m happier, healthier, and enjoying life from a different perspective. Finding friends that aren’t named Smirnoff, Jack Daniel’s, and MGD gives life a little more substance. Drink, but NEVER drink & drive.
Drugs: can affect more than just you. I personally don’t do drugs, and I never will. Experiencing a death within the realm of what you call high school is something I hope no one goes through. I have seen what it does to people, my friends, and I don’t condone what they do… but I also give them support when they decide that it’s not for them.
War: is ugly. It’s an ugly word and an ugly thing. I hope that in my lifetime we won’t have to go through a World War III. But I do give the troops my support.
Very overweight people: I’m lucky to have grown up in a family where beauty is everywhere. My parents have always told me from the start that beauty comes from within. It doesn’t matter if you’re skinny or fat, for I myself could hit the gym a few times, it’s all in the way you feel. Most over weight people are sad and depressed and find comfort in indulging their cravings. I feel that if you have the motivation, go for it, but if you don’t; don’t feel bad for yourself. Everyone can change, but only if you want to.
Fake people: need to find their own identity. Who cares if some people don’t like you for who you are; they’re not worth it if they do. All that matters is that you feel good about yourself, and soon people will see the real you.
Different religion: "Different strokes for different folks". The only thing you need to believe in is what you feel is right.
Tell the truth...
Are you racist? No, I believe that beauty comes in many different colors.
Do you believe in love at first sight? No, but I know that there’s one person out there, just for you.
Where did you hear about this community? The realwrldroadrul community.
Do you judge/label people without giving them a chance? No, you’ll never get anywhere in life if you believe in just one thing or what someone says. Judgments last a while, but ignorance lasts a lifetime.
Any suggestions for this community? New questions for the accepted? That way, everyone can get to know everyone.
If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it? I would pay for my parents’ bills and get them a nice house with a good view – I’d make sure that their life was equally or even better than the one they shared with me. I would buy my brother his dream car since he took me every where in highschool without asking for gas money, I would by myself a Louis Vuitton; not because they’re popular but because I really do like them. And then I would give the rest to the American Cancer Society under the name of my bestfriend Kelsey’s mom who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
Do you have any future dreams, if so, what are they? I would like to go to a college and major in creative writing or journalism, I have also wanted to take some cooking courses; I figured I could major in pastries and minor in main courses. Hehe.
Who is your role model and why? I would have to say; my mother. She’s beautiful in so many ways. She’s so strong and always willing to go out of her way to make someone’s life easier than her own. She believes in what she does and why she does it; and if I could be just a little bit like her when I’m a mother, I would die happy.
Why do you want to be in this community? I think it gives people the chance to like people because of their personalities rather than their looks. It’s a positive atmosphere and I definitely feel comfortable voicing my opinions.
