About Me: Hi, I'm Peri! I grew up in Beijing and now I live in lovely Upstate New York. I am very passionate about research and finding different ways to make the most of the GW experience, whether that is through exploring the wide array of interesting courses offered to us or through getting involved in different campus orgs. Outside of academics, I love nature and being outdoors, discovering new art/music/films, and exploring all the wonderful coffee shops, museums and restaurants in DC with friends. Super excited to get to know you guys, welcome to the UHP!
