Hi! My name is Serina Jiang (she/her/hers) and I am a first year at Marshall majoring in Economics. I love history so I’m actually considering a history double major. I’m originally from Beijing, China, but I moved to Canada when I was 12. I enjoy playing the violin, reading, spending time in the nature, and playing video games on PS4, Steam, and Switch.

In high school I took 20th century world history with a focus on North America, the Middle East, and Europe. We did not learn much about East Asia so I’m super excited to be in this class.
