Traveler Bio

大家好! (Dà jiā hǎo, hello everyone)! My name is Kaylee Hubbard, but I prefer Libby. My Chinese name is 何冰. (Hé bīng, He Bing) I am 20 years old, and I am originally from a small town, called Jacksonville in Alabama. Growing up in a small town, there wasn't very much to do, so I entertained myself with art, hanging out with friends, and exposing myself to different languages and cultures. I am an undergraduate student at Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York. I am currently a double major in International and Global Studies and Mandarin Chinese. I started studying Chinese in college, so I am nowhere near fluent, but I enjoy learning the language and culture. I have also studied some Korean and French, but I'm a little rusty. I hope to expose myself to many more languages in the future! I also would like to teach you all some Chinese, so look out for that in my journals! I look forward to sharing my journey to Taiwan with you, and I hope I can inspire you all to follow your dreams and passions. You never know where they might lead you!
