Born in Canton, China. I was raised in Hunan, China.  I speak Mandarin and Cantonese fluently.  I immigrated with my family to San Francisco when I was 10 years old. Not speaking a word of English, I struggled in school until I was in sixth grade when everything clicked. I attended Presideo Middle School in SF, then to one of the best high schools in San Francisco, Lowell High and went to U.C. Berkeley for my bachelors in Computer Science, BA.
