Hi, thanks for having me! I’m a full-time graduate student and content creator from Pennsylvania. I identify as Chinese American and Canadian — I was born in Toronto, Canada and moved to the US when I was fairly young, but I still try to visit Toronto every year! I’m currently in school to get my MBA and PsyD in Clinical Psychology. When I’m not doing schoolwork, I enjoy making content that shares my Chinese heritage, language, fashion, and lifestyle!
What inspires your fashion style and where do you love to shop from?
I would describe my fashion style as eclectic! I definitely don’t only have one particular type of style, and I love experimenting with different looks. The way I dress honestly just depends on how I feel that day — some days I’m a total girly girl, and other days I’m happy wearing baggy shorts and an oversized T-shirt. As for where I like to shop from, I don’t really have one go-to store. As a student who’s on a budget, affordable fashion is my best friend!
How much of a foodie are you and what are your favorites?
I’m a HUGE foodie! It’s actually kind of funny because when I was younger, I was such a picky eater! But now, I’m always down to try new foods and cuisines. If I could only pick one food to eat for the rest of my life, it would definitely be sushi! Other than that, some of my unique picks are dim sum style chicken feet, sundae (Korean blood sausage), and mangosteens (my most recent find)! My motto with food is always: don’t knock it ‘til you try it!
What hobbies or interests are you into?
Besides creating videos and content for my platforms, I enjoy photography, journaling, and reading. I also love spending time with my 2 dogs — they’re both Yorkies! Also, I tend to fall into what I call phases where I’ll get super absorbed into learning something new. This past year, I’ve learned how to crochet, bake, and cook different cuisines!
Which 3 things do you enjoy experiencing or doing in the city you live in?
Since I live in the suburbs, I really enjoy exploring local parks/trails around me! I also love going to Philly, whether that be to go restaurant hopping in Chinatown or to just roam around the city for a day. Besides that, nothing beats a lazy day at home chilling with my furbabies!
Are there any quotes or mottos you like to use regularly?
I shared the little motto that I like when it comes to trying new foods! But, other than that, I actually really like this poem by Max Ehrmann called “Desiderata”. The whole piece is very beautiful, thought-provoking, and humbling, but there’s this one quote in there: “You are a child of the universe, / no less than the trees and the stars; / you have a right to be here”, which has really helped shape the life I live — it reminds me that I’m human, too, and should be gentle not only with others, but also with myself.
If you could learn anything in this world, what will it be?
Hmm… this is a tough one because there are so many things that I wish I could learn! But I think as of right now, I’d love to learn how to be more reflective, which is where journaling comes in! I’ve been trying to make journaling a habit (which has proven to be much harder than said), but I think taking time out of my day for gratitude and reflection has had huge benefits on me!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Francine. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Of course, thank you for inviting me to do this! That’s a great question that could be answered a million different ways! I think that for me, “sexy” means being confident in your own skin. I’ve definitely had, and still have, my struggles when it comes to this, especially growing up in an area where I didn’t see a lot of people who looked like me or shared my culture, whether that was in school or in the media. But there’s beauty in diversity—no matter your race/ethnicity, age, gender, sexuality, etc.—and I think that everyone has something about themselves that is worth being proud of! There’s no one else on this Earth who’s exactly the same as you, and that’s pretty amazing if you ask me!
