Bio

I am a student at UC Berkeley and I am obsessed with strategy and the ability to draw from different circles I have been a part of in order to generate results through very unconventional ways. I was interested in marketing and I learned everything about marketing through education because the axioms between both of those fields line up pretty neatly. I learned how to have my finger on the pulse of different personalities and how to adapt to the learning abilities of people from toddlers to senior citizens, which translates to brand messaging in marketing. I also love to run marathons barefoot and compete in local chess tournaments! I would love to become an independent crisis manager for large companies or to be in a position where I become the system of an industry.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

I am a student at UC Berkeley and I am obsessed with strategy and the ability to draw from different circles I have been a part of in order to generate results through very unconventional ways. I was interested in marketing and I learned everything about marketing through education because the axioms between both of those fields line up pretty neatly. I learned how to have my finger on the pulse of different personalities and how to adapt to the learning abilities of people from toddlers to senior citizens, which translates to brand messaging in marketing.

1. What's the most courageous thing you've ever done?

The most courageous thing I have ever done was rescue my friend from drug abuse by separating her from her captors and by bringing her help in the form of professionals at a time when she hated me for doing such a thing. I was courageous enough to end our mutual friendship with one of her captors and I was able to bring attention to her from her parents who were ignorant of what was happening to their daughter. Being a part of the asian culture, I have been taught to never intervene in things that don't have anything to do with me and I was trapped by this my entire life. Being able to take that first step away from my parents and my culture took all I had within myself.

2. How are creativity and innovation related?

To me, I have a very precise definition of innovation. Innovation is the essence of being on there periphery of multiple circles (economic, cultural, industrial) and bridging those circles with the novel information you have developed in that space. Creativity to me is all about how to position yourself in the appropriate circles and novelly applying the information you receive that others who are embedded within their respective circles would not receive. Creativity is about how you time the application of these pieces of wisdom and to me creativity is the engine of innovation in this very precise way I have outlined.

3. Why do companies need clarity and creativity?

Any commercial company's strict goal is to always have their finger on the pulse of their market and what they want, but also to balance that with telling their market what they want. You don't particularly need creativity to figure out what people want. I think to go into the unknown of prognosticating what people actually want would be where creativity lies. Sometimes this is important because sometimes your market says they want something but in reality they don't even know what they actually want. Clarity is equally important as a way to keep the company "honest" with its creative ventures. Clarity prevents people from making inaccurate assumptions as to what they think people want. Both play off of one another in order to paint a balanced picture of the future.

4. You have 30 minutes of free time. What do you do with it?

I would spend half of the time doing push-ups. "'Be the change you want to see.' You know who said that? GAINdhi" -Dom Mazetti With the other half of the time, I would probably spend it meditating.

5. What is one risky and bold goal in life you have? Or, if you could dedicate your life to solving one problem, what would it be?

If I could dedicate my life to solving one problem, it would be to personally develop a program or a method/training course that would educate people on how to be more attuned to suicidal ideation and how to escalate a situation like that. I firmly believe that if we were able to dedicate some kind of training to the general public regarding attunement and suicidal training, a lot of emotional problems are remedied. In that sense, I would aim to get governmental support for this, as this is going to grow to be a much bigger problem in the future and I would love to work with clinicians to figure out a possible solution.

6. Explain your creative process

My process begins very pragmatically by firmly establishing the rules and boundaries to the project at hand and understanding all of the players in the game. From there, I iteratively work through various scenarios to understand the most I can get away with, by breaking the established rules and guidelines. I even consider what it would look like for me to get into trouble, because of the implications of the strategy. I think my process is a combination of rapid-fire ideation and from there I implement generational iterative improvements to all the ideas I have come up with. For me, outcome indifference is an important part of the creative process because I must separate myself from failure when we are dealing with ideas. In the real world, failure tolerance is definitely something that indicates creativity and I actively work towards balancing failure tolerance with realistic standards to give myself the best chance to be as creative as I can.

7. What is the best advice that you have been given?

I remember when I was at California Boys' State, my mentor sat next to me during lunch and he told me that people will work for years and even decades at a particular job and dedicate their lives to a craft, and all of a sudden people can sometimes enter the picture and move much further than that person by befriending the boss, learning how to be influential, and more. The first person worked hard and the second person worked smart. Always work smart, not hard; it is not a virtue to work hard if you don't get what you want in th most efficient way possible (within the lines of the law of course!).

8. What is your definition of creativity?

The ability to make people believe the ordinary to look extraordinary; to make people think that you have lost your mind in the ideation process. The ability to go from rapid ideation to slow generational improvements off of the ideation-based ideas that were created. And finally, creativity is knowing yourself and being able to harness your instincts.

9. What 10 songs are on your favorite playlist right now?

Gloomy Sunday by Diamanda Galas Object Permanence by Jon McKiel Melting Into One by BEGINNERS No Queda Nada by Arca Gettin' It On (In The Sunshine) by Rick James Voodoo Chile by Jimi Hendrix Family Man by Black Flag Slop by Forth Wanderers Respeita by Sango Soon We'll Be FOund by Sia

10. How do you want people to remember you?

Ordinarily, I want people to remember how I was able to fill the space by explaining the impressions and intentions in-between the lines of ordinary conversation. I want them to remember how remarkably normal my conversations can sometimes be. If we are talking about a mentor, I want them to remember how great of a tool I can be to both do the grunt work for them but also with the ability to be trusted with secrets.
