Faith Pang 彭穎恩

Professional Fields: English literature and Chinese

Hobbies / Interests: volleyball, swimming, music, reading

Career Goals: When I was young, I learned how to speak Cantonese and I went to Chinese school to learn how to write Chinese. At first, I disliked learning Chinese. I could not understand why I had to learn a difficult second language. But as I grew older, I grew more and more aware of my Chinese heritage, and I wanted to learn more about Chinese language. Now that I am in college, I want to improve my Mandarin speaking skills and ultimately to master the Chinese language. At Hunter, I am a Chinese, English and Music major. I plan to attend law school after I graduate and use my knowledge of Chinese along with my law degree to make a difference. I have an immense love for playing the piano. I began learning Classical music when I was four and have been playing ever since. I also love to read, especially fiction books. I enjoy playing volleyball and swimming.
