Before I start to introduce myself, you need to know one thing. I’m a boring person. Never did something crazy, like hanging over, talking with a stranger in a bar or walking along during the midnight. I’m a kind of person who never put myself in a dangerous place.
But I chose journalism as my major.
Back to the day, I got the offer from University of Oregon, my friends felt so surprised about my decision. Because I need to leave my home, cross Pacific Ocean, fly 15 hours to get to a new country and use my second language to report news.
So, my friends asked me:”Phoenix, are you insane?”
Of course, I’m not.
I just want to learn something new and add more skills in my toolbox. And these new skills will help me present stories in a better way.
Now, I’m in Portland!
I do my first time Airbnb, meet my first friend in Portland, first time hiking, first time drinking sour beer, first time hangover, first time talking with a stranger in a bar and first time walking along during the midnight. LoL
