Personal Background

Shawn’s journey has been profoundly shaped by the rich tapestry of Japanese culture during his university years. It instilled in him a deep appreciation for punctuality, respectfulness, and the art of harmonizing with others. Themes of humility, connection with nature, and spirituality have also woven themselves intricately into the fabric of his being. Meanwhile, he finds himself drawn to the Western ideals of freedom of speech, innovation, and heroism as well, and it is interesting to see the different impact of lifestyles.
Originally from a town in northern China, Shawn hails from a sprawling family network filled with numerous beloved aunts and uncles. Later, his path led him to Beijing, where he pursued his studies and career, subsequently navigating through various cities before settling in Singapore currently. He has his own family with three children, and often travels back to meet family members and partake in grand family gatherings, which remain cherished cornerstones of his life. Yet, equally cherished are the moments of self, where he finds solace in introspection and self-discovery.
Known among his family for a sense of responsibility that spans both near and far, and among friends as a steadfast presence during times of adversity, Shawn strives to maintain meaningful connections in every facet of his life. His journey thus far has been a tapestry of diverse experiences, each one shaping him into the person he is today.
