Tentative Thesis Title: “A Chicken Coop without a Door?” Investigating Civic Education in the Hong Kong Context

Future aspirations post-Stanford: Looking towards post-grad, I intend to (1) pursue graduate studies in international policy and law and (2) explore how academia and policymaking can more effectively inform each other. As I consider the US Foreign Service or human rights NGO work as a future career, I ultimately aim to ground my future work (whatever that may be!) in public service, community engagement, and within the international affairs space.

A fun fact about yourself: After my study abroad in HK, seal engraving has become a new hobby of mine!
