Hello! I am an aspiring diplomat, a foreign language enthusiast, an editor, a taekwon-do athlete, and a Stanford undergrad. I love discussing Asia Pacific security, windowsill-reading, running, and munching on almonds, though not necessarily in that order.

Check out the “Book Summaries” page for a look at my thoughts on some of the books I read or the “Miscellaneous” page for less-serious thoughts on a wide spectrum of topics. Welcome to “In an Almond Shell”!
