My name is Li Jiang Han Han (李江涵瀚). An uncommon combination of four characters, it entails both my parents' surnames, and Han Han connates essential virtues and immenseness of the mind as much as that of the ocean.
Hail from the Hakka community in the southeast of China, I have lived in the United States for the past eight years and find it satisfying to call this land my second home. An adventurer at heart, I have embarked on a string of international ventures and have set foot on four continents.

There goes a Syrian proverb that reads “yali eido bil may, mu metl eli eido bl nar”, which could be loosely translated as “He, whose hand is in the water, doesn’t compare himself to those whose hand is in the fire”. In other words, regarding the Syrian refugee crisis, is it true that countries doing the heavy-lifting work are the countries that were talked about the least in the news? Or vise versa.
