Hello there. I’m Ruoxi.

I was born in Beijing, China in the 1990s. My early childhood in the capital city consisted of playing in the rock garden with lao ye and perching in my grandmother’s kitchen as she prepared daily suppers for her large family. When I was six, my parents and I moved to the United States where I was the tallest child in my first grade class. I’ve continued to grow ever since.

I recently graduated from the University of Virginia where I studied economics, religious studies and a wide assortment of subjects which have further cultivated my intellectual humility. This site is a curation of my experiences and inspiration as I look forward to the journeys which await me. Welcome!
