Why Weinbetween

As a first-generation immigrant, I've always felt like I'm floating in an in-between state; In between two cultures, two countries and two languages.

5 fun facts about me

1

Originally from the northeast China, I have been living in Los Angeles since 2005. I grew up in a city that snows every winter, and now I consider it too cold when it's below 70°F.

I'm an interior designer by training. No one in my family is in the creative field. My parents used to be against me choosing interior design as a field. They wanted me to be a nurse or accountant.

I love Latin music and have fallen in love with salsa dancing. For two years, I would go to my local dance studio after work or on the weekends and stay for social dance nearly every night. I'm pretty sure one of the dances I performed in elementary school contributed to my love for Latin music.

One of the first jobs I had in L.A. was as a card dealer in a local casino. I went to a dealer school to learn how to deal cards and play all the games for 3 months before I started. Never in my life did I think I'd be good at dealing cards.

Growing up, I always dreamed about traveling the world. Flying to LA was my first experience on an airplane. Now, I've traveled to 12 countries and 4 continents, with many other places on my list to visit. Every time I visit some place new, I fall more in love with the different cultures of the world.
