    Where were you born, and where did you grow up?
    I was born in Hong Kong but have lived for the majority of my life so far in Germany, England, and Italy.

    What do you think makes Parsons Paris unique?
    Having attended eight schools over the course of my life, I have to say that Parsons Paris offers you a study experience you will not get anywhere else. The campus is not big enough to overwhelm you, it is at the heart of Paris, everyone is very helpful, and the services provided at school are all very efficient and convenient to access. What more can you ask for?

    What course or project was your favorite? Tell us about it.
    The courses offered at Parsons Paris are all so diverse and unique in their own way that it is hard to compare them. One course that stood out during my first-year studies is Sustainable Systems, which I enjoyed very much. The readings, discussions, and projects done in class are valuable and positively educational for future designers and artists. Generally speaking, all projects done in the Art, Media, and Technology program are fun and beneficial for future employment in the art industry.
