Before attending [College I attended for freshman and sophmore years], I had been homeschooled my entire life. It would be an understatement to say that I was intimidated. However, I was also tremendously excited. I had become interested in politics during the 2008 election. Soon after, I started listening to BBC News every night before falling asleep.

I have an international family. My father is Chinese-Malaysian, and his family all live in Malaysia, Singapore, and Australia. My mother is American, but for most of my life my maternal grandparents lived in Turkey. As a result, my family has traveled to visit relatives overseas for as long as I can remember.
