Your greatest achievement:
I would have to say that my greatest achievement thus far has been winning the Miss Asian America title in 2008. Pageantry has really helped me hone my public speaking skills and develop a true passion for volunteerism.
What do you love most about your work?
What I love most about being a professional matchmaker is that I help people find something that everyone seeks and deserves in life — love! It’s incredibly fulfilling to have a job that brings people together in a meaningful way.
One piece of advice you would give your 18 year old self:
Choose a college major that will help you find a job that you truly love because then you will never have to work a day in your life!
Skincare product you can’t live without:
Most women wear make-up on a daily basis so it’s very important to use a good remover that not only fully removes all your make-up but also moisturizes your skin. I have been using a Japanese brand named Fancl’s make-up remover, which is amazing because it fully removes all my make-up within 10 seconds of rubbing on my face, with no need for water or sponges!
Your motto in life:
Do what you love, love what you do!
The trend you hope never goes out of style:
Waist belts! I feel like they make such a great accessory on most outfits, and is the easiest thing to put on to add a spark to your daily wardrobe!
Which of the seven deadly sins are you guilty of?
It’s a tight race between pride and gluttony, as I am a huge foodie, but if I had to choose one I would say pride. I am extremely prideful but I think that’s what makes me a resilient and hard worker. I always strive to be the best at whatever I do!
Your favorite restaurant for brunch and your go-to order:
The monte cristo at Mama’s on Washington Square! If it wasn’t for the 2 hour wait, I would be there every day!
Your longest lasting friendship?
I have known one of my best friends from Junior High for over 16 years and every year we still write each other birthday and Christmas cards. I strongly value long-term relationships of any kind because it says a lot about a person’s value of commitment.
