I am from China and currently live in Canada. I love to make origami and listen to music in my free time. Hi everyone, I'm Gia and I'm excited to be back on this podcast! Like Kei, I enjoy playing the violin and listening to music. I also love to journal, dance, and play with my dog in my free time.  (Gia's mic is wonky in this episode but we promise things will only get better from here.) We hope you enjoy our episode!!
