Peitong often asks herself, “Why are you here on this planet?” Peitong is from Jinan, a city decorated by willow trees and lotus flowers in China. She lives close to the hometown of Confucius, an influential Chinese philosopher. She grew up surrounded by atheists, Taoist, and Buddhist believers. However, Peitong is a big fan of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, St Therese, and her Guardian Angel. At UW-Madison, Peitong is a sophomore majoring in Economics and International Studies. She likes fireflies, farmers markets, the Lakeshore Path, and the United States. She is very excited to get to know you.
