Hello! I'm Haisu.
Thanks for stopping by my digital home! Born on a small island in Wenzhou, China and moving to Queens, NY at the age of 8, I have a different answer to "where are you really from?," depending on how you ask it.
Yes, I am doing me! After quitting my job in 2014, I packed my stuff and moved to Santiago, Chile. Since then, I've taught there, worked for a German startup, and booked too many last-minute flights.
This is not about finding myself. I know who I am. It's about sharing my experiences - working at a dream job that no longer was a dream job, moving to a new country without speaking the language, and starting to do things that scare the crap out of me.
I am nervous as heck being so public but I'd like to give a voice to the folks that look like me. #Asiangirlswhotravel
I'll leave the inspiring to other folks. Instead, I'm here to give practical tips on moving abroad, yummy food recommendations, and dope places to check out.
Your turn! Tell me about you. I like building a community wherever I am and always get hype hearing about people's passions. Shoot me a message for projects, collaborations, or tea get-togethers. I'm currently obsessed with green tea with real ginger and Korean brown rice tea.
