Recognizable me: Hello, everyone! My name is Adan Huang. I’m a 22 year old Sagittarius. As you can already tell, I’m into astrology and numerology. I was born in a beautiful small town near the ocean in China. I moved to Houston, TX when I was 12 years old. In 2013, I made one of the best decisions of my life and moved to Boulder, CO. When people ask, I like to answer “home is where the heart is.” As of right now, home is Boulder. I fell in love with Boulder as soon as I moved there. I mean, how can anyone not? I love waking up to a white world, smelling the freshness of snow with a spectacular view of the mountains. I’ve gotten to meet people from all over the U.S. and the world in such a small town. As much as I love Boulder, I plan on moving to New York when I graduate. I will get to enjoy a fast paced city life while living closer to the ocean. For a dedicated seafood lover like me, the question of fresh oysters actually plays a factor in picking a place to live. Besides that, let’s be honest, Boulder doesn’t exactly have the best fashion sense.
Where I’m at: I’m a junior studying economics at CU Boulder. Over the summer, I began a marketing internship with a mobile app/website called 5miles in Beijing, China. This would be my first time being back in China in 10 years. It’s also the first time I get to live with my biological sister since I was 2. So I gladly welcomed the opportunity. Last month, I was asked to extend my time at 5miles with pay. Since CU offers online classes such as this class, I decided to take all online classes in order to stay in Beijing for the semester. Having to go to work from 10AM till 7PM four days a week, I consider this internship a job at the same time. The easiest way to describe 5miles is that it is a “mobile Craigslist.” So far, I’v gotten to work with online advertisement and digital marketing. Some projects that I’ve worked with include online social media contests and campus rep programs that intend to raise brand awareness and drive downloads.
What you want: What I want to learn in this class the most is professional writing. I’ve already had to deal with a lot of professional business writings at my internship, including emails, social media official account posts, and presentations. I also would like to meet some fellow students who plan on entering the business world. As the old saying would state, “you are who you surround yourself with.” I would love to improve my time management skills and self-motivation, two traits that I believe would help anyone go far in life.
Where to find you: My favorite things to do include jet skiing, attending concerts, and playing tennis. I recently started to skateboard which I also enjoy a lot. EDM is definitely my favorite type of music when I’m in the presence of others. When I’m alone, I enjoy some Everclear or The Beatles. My favorite movies are the ones that make you reassess the reality and the society, such as The Truman Show. I can’t stand a movie with an ending that’s easy to guess. Unlike most people, I thrive on change. Change has always been the constant in my life. As a Sagittarius, freedom and adventure are two most important things to me. Considering these combinations, it’s safe to say that you can find me at some of the most unexpected places.
