Hello everyone! I’m Taotao and I’m currently a Junior at Georgetown University in the Walsh School of Foreign Service. I’m pursuing a major in Regional and Comparative Studies (with a concentration in the Middle East and Latin America) as well as two minors: Environmental Studies and Spanish. I’m originally from Washington DC and have spent most of my life in the US, but have also lived in China and South Africa. My experiences around the world have definitely been very formative, and it was noticing a trend of similar issues (e.g. pollution, wildlife conservation, etc.) that first sparked my environmental consciousness and awareness. Other than academics/professional interests, I really enjoy playing the piano (I’ve played since I was 6), love (LOVE) watching just about everything on Disney+ but Ratatouille has a special place in my heart, and love making coffee since I’ve worked as a barista for over a year.
