Andrew was born in 1991 and raised in St. Louis, MO USA. His parents are originally from China and they moved to St. Louis to attend graduate school at Washington University. He has an older brother who is a doctor.
Andrew attended High School at Parkway North graduating in 2010. Afterwards, he joined the Marine Corps and was stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC as a Marine Musician until 2014. During his military tour he earned a BA in Business Administration during night school via the extended campus with Campbell University in Buies Creek, NC.
Upon the end of service Andrew returned home to St. Louis, MO with his newly-wed wife in 2014 to attend Law School at Washington University where he earned his JD in 2017. Andrew would become a licensed attorney in Missouri and begin his MBA at Webster University in that meanwhile. He would then join back with the Marine Corps as a JAG officer.
The end goal is for Andrew to do what he can to affect positive community change.
Happiness is everywhere. Whether it be small acts of kindness and generosity, the smiles of loved ones, the unconditional love from a pet, or accomplishment of a mission, happiness is found; but that opportunity is not forwarded to everyone the same. Closed environments, ineffective education, lack of moral support, institutionalized barriers, and inferior mindsets all underlay this life of supposed liberty. People are in need of help. And although there are resources and a system in play, throwing money and generally regulating the masses is no way to aid people towards happiness. But I will not stand for that. I am set upon obtaining a position to properly guide and influence those who will go on to lead this country. People need a voice, an outlet, to be exacted, equipped, and encouraged – and with my motivated passion I will find them a means to do so. That is my goal.
I am on a mission to dedicate my goals towards improving the structure and foundation of this nation. Needed mentorship ought to be more readily available and self seeking within the education system and other community centers in order to extract, equip, and encourage the future to their highest potential possible. However, to get anything done requires resources, education, and a network of reliable contacts (if you are unaware of the innocent and underprivileged conditions, go visit a inner city 'bad part of town' school during the summer and try to admit it is those kid's own fault for not being able to go to that high tech suburbs school).
I know myself, I know where I give honor to, I know why, what, how, and have the inspiration to do it. I am unique, but the crazy thing is that everyone is. It is just knowing how to bring those unique qualities together. Diversity is given in anyone and reasons can be made, but for myself, “Live your life to ensure the one you love would be proud of you”.
