Me back in good ol’ Ithaca

Hi, welcome to my blog!

My name is Sidney and I am a junior at Cornell studying abroad in Hong Kong.  I am majoring in Environmental Engineering with a minor in Design & Environmental Analysis. I am continuing my sustainability and engineering studies at Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST) for the Fall 2017 semester.

Some fast facts about me:

  • I am an Asian American born and raised in NYC.
  • Both my parents are immigrants. My mom is from Malaysia and my dad is from Hong Kong (!!).
  • My first language was Cantonese (!!). One of my hopes for this trip is to be able to practice and hone my Cantonese skills every day.
  • My favorites: the color green, fluffy cats, silence, tiny spaces, and Jesus.

I’ll be posting weekly about my adventures and tips/tricks for study abroad, so stay tuned. I’m so excited to share my journey with you!
