Hello! I’m Phoebe. I’m currently a second-year planning to major in Politics and minor in East Asian Studies.
I was born in China, but raised in Chicago and spent the last decade or so being rolled through the “super awesome” (not really) school systems there, but am so glad to get a breath of fresh air at Oberlin.
In my free time, I work at the Conservatory Library and am a facilitator and member of the Student Leadership Team with Barefoot Dialogue. I'm also on the board of Asian Diaspora Coalition, I serve on the Student Honor Committee, participate as a mentee with the Asian American Alliance's Mentor-Mentee program, and serve as a mentor for Navigating Adoption. I am also cofounder of Spread Your Wings, a group working to make sure young women around the world have access to education. Interested in what we do and ways to help? Check out syw-impact.org for more information!
When I'm taking some time to appreciate Oberlin's campus, I enjoy walking around Tappan Square, sitting beside the koi pond, or going on rides along the bike path. I love admiring the gorgeous fall colors of the leaves and definitely take the opportunity to stop and snap some pics when I can.
On weekdays, you can usually find me chilling in my dorm or speeding to class on my bike, plugged into whatever music I’m into at the moment. On the weekends, you’ll find me sleeping, watching movies, or deep in thought.
