“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.”
As I stood on the street of New York City witnessing performances happening around me this well-known speech written by William Shakespeare echoes in my mind. My name is Xinying Huang. I was born and raised in Nanjing, China. I graduated from Nanjing Foreign Language School, and received my B.A from UC, Irvine with a major in Drama. Following my passion in theatre, I currently studying Performing Arts Administration at NYU. I enjoy dancing, traveling and interviewing. I have visited arts venues in both Asian and European countries, and I also interviewed many actors, designers, models, and fashion bloggers during NYFW. I believe art is a universal language. I strongly felt the inner connection among various forms of art especially in the aspect of cultural exchange and integration. My desire to bring joy to the audience is the key motivation driving me toward my future career. I join Miss Chinese Beauty Pageant because I want to challenge myself and live my life as fully as possible.
