Psyched to share this snippet of convo with Ling -- recorded last fall in Sept 2020. We went to the same college at the same time, but somehow our paths didn't cross until an alumni event a few years ago.

- MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI): the internships abroad program

- Working at Pixar Animation Studios on Finding Dory, Toy Story 4, Soul, and many more! (and then leaving)

- Language learning philosophy: make as many mistakes as possible; seed new languages in bits: learn one small tidbit and practice noticing it in the real work -- like meditation; let it be part of you

- Language learning apps, platforms, and communities: Discord, Hello Talk, Tandem

- Computational Linguistics and natural language processing (NPL): fascinating space to dive into

- Experience of moving to and quarantining in Taiwan: LINE chat with all the cute stickers

- Life choices anchored around valuing varied and interesting experiences

- Able to spend time and energy rediscovering creativity, self, and identity
