Bio 

I am a final-year psychology undergraduate at the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a public health minor.  As an outdoor enthusiast, I enjoy immersing myself in nature and feeling how everything is interconnected.  “Interbeing” with the nature encourages me to let go of worldly things by realizing all phenomena are ever-changing and impermanent.  Matching with my experience, Buddhist psychological constructs have captured my interest.  Aspiring to advocate for social justice, I am especially interested in the potentials of Buddhist Psychology in lowering the sense of self, cultivating compassion, and mobilizing prosocial behaviors.  Paving a path for collective liberation and a more inclusive society against stigma and the rigid social norms is never easy, yet is a goal I would like to strive for.
