The most memorable moment
When my family first arrived in Canada, we didn’t have much money and was very fortunate to receive subsidies from the government. In addition, I struggled in school due to the language barrier. After years of hard work and volunteering in the community, I was awarded as a Youth Immigrant with Distinction in Calgary. The moment that I accepted the award on TV was the most memorable.

Reasons for joining the Pageant
I joined this pageant to challenge myself, push my limits, and to reach for my dreams.
Why do you think you will excel at this Pageant and be crowned Miss Chinese Vancouver?
To be able to win the hearts of the judges and the audience, one must be confident yet humble. I am confident in my dance training, yet I stay humble for all disciplines.
If you won this contest, how, as Miss Chinese Vancouver, would you contribute to the society and the world?
I would like to use the title to speak about physical and mental health issues. Especially regarding the stigma of mental health issues, as it is a time sensitive manner that is close to my heart.
