Hi! My name is Annie Hsu and I am a fourth-year undergraduate student at the University of Pennsylvania, studying International Relations and History. I was born in Toronto, but I grew up in China until the age of 11 when I moved back to Canada. Having experienced the challenges of integrating into a new community, I am immensely passionate about Bridge The Heart and the work we do. At Penn, I serve as a Perry World House Fellow, Editor-in-Chief of the Sigma Iota Rho National Honor Society for International Studies Journal of International Relations, Student Fellow at the Center for the Study of Contemporary China. I previously served as the President of the International Relations Undergraduate Student Association. Professionally, I have worked in the foreign policy field and have been involved in several research projects. In my free time, I enjoy practicing Chinese calligraphy, playing the guitar and piano, and visiting art museums. I am very much looking forward to meeting you at BTH events!
