"I am a M.A. Art History graduate student at the University of Oregon with a field of study in early Chinese art/ Buddhist art. Though my area of study is in East Asian Art, most of my undergraduate Art History courses riveted in Western classical arts. During the nascent stage of immigrating to the U.S. nearly 10 years ago, I possessed nearly no language of English. Such obstacle has never become a barrier throughout my journey of accomplishing academic success. I received an average GPA of 4.05"
