Hiu Yi Lin

I’m Vienne from Hong Kong, a third-year doctoral student in Education at Bath. My professional life is pretty cerebral as I read and write a lot. When I’m free, I like binge-watching and making time for sunset. I have many interests that seem incompatible with each other. In my wildest dreams, I want to be a modern farmer raising alpacas! (I’m just thinking out loud!)
