What’s your go-to meal for a cozy night in?
I usually make salad by myself, and sometimes I make soup and share it with my roommates. I’m really busy with my college work all the time, but if I have time, I really love to make something to share.
What’s your earliest jewellery memory?
My mum loves to collect different types of jewellery, she keeps them all in a vintage box. Sometimes, when she was not home, I would try them on and put them back when she came home. There were many traditional and impressive pieces of Chinese jewellery in her box, like Jadeite and Agate. This is when I started dreaming about becoming a jewellery designer, and my interest has grown from there.
What’s your favourite local hidden gem?
I love the galleries and museums in London – I love going alone with a sketchbook to draw sculptures and paintings. It calms me down straight away, and for me, is the best way to escape from the hustle and bustle of London.
Go to trashy movie?
Rom-coms! I like watching them as you don’t need to think about the storyline, and you can relax so easily.
I couldn’t possibly start the day without…?
Music! The first thing I do when I wake up is get my bluetooth speaker. It always cheers me up and gives me the motivation to start a new day.
