Global Challenge: Emerging Media

When I think about my future career, emerging media is on my mind. However, since my major involves such a broad range of paths, I'm trying to narrow down my direction that not only echoes my interests and strengths but also serves the well-being of human society."



I was born and raised on the east coast of China, and later, I attended high school in Utah. Although my previous experience was focused on arts, I finally found my passion in both design and media at Tandon School of Engineering, New York University. I’m also enthusiastic about anthropology and heritage, and I have learned them through my countless traveling experiences since childhood. I’m trying my best to apply my knowledge in media and culture to contribute to cultural awareness and tradition preservation. In my spare time, I play video games, play musical instruments, and visit museums and libraries. I have worked as a Site Ambassador and Study Away Program Assistant at NYU Shanghai during my study away semesters. I also interned at a non-profit organization where I practiced my design and media skills and increased my knowledge in education justice. At school, I have worked for the Augmented Reality VIP team and the Chinese Students and Scholars Association. You probably have never heard anyone called Evaine before because I made it up.
