About me

As a highly-organised individual with a strong passion for arts and design, after doing an intern at Season Art Children Education institution in Taiwan. I moved to London to continue my studies in Creativity and Culture Industry at Goldsmiths and MA degree in Curating Contemporary Design at Kingston School of Art. My studies at Kingston and Goldsmiths has helped me develop an intimate knowledge of Curating, as well as learning essential practical skills relating to research, project management, exhibition making, programming. Apart from my studies, I also have been administration intern in Uspace gallery and several volunteer experience in London such as D&AD and Merge Festival. I am currently looking for an opportunity to develop my career in an administrative and project management capacity within the design and creative industry.
