Self-introduction 自我介紹: Hi everyone! I’m contestant #2, Emily Yang, 楊瀅雪, and I’m a 17-year old high school graduate from West Windsor, New Jersey! This fall, I will be attending UC Berkeley with an intended major of Biology and Business. From the very beginning, my life has been filled with music; music, specifically singing and Guzheng, has connected me to my family, friends, and cultural heritage. As I grew up, I realized that although the instruments I played were predominantly of one culture, there were no boundaries as to what I could express; music truly was a universal language. Along with this realization came a deepening passion to share my findings in the world, musically and otherwise. There are many boundaries between the cultures I have been born into, but I hope to show that those boundaries are surmountable. “Everything is possible.” That is my life motto; it has helped me explore all of my interests, from researching in labs to creating music to trying different genres of voice. It has also led me here, to the Miss Chinese Pageant. Through this pageant, I hope to further unite the two distinct cultures that have greatly influenced my life, both for myself and for others.
