Hey everyone, my name is Julie and I'm originally from China. I’m a (old 😢) climber in my 30's and currently work as a data scientist in a tech company.
I started climbing when I was in graduate school. The climbing wall was just so attractive and I couldn't resist giving it a try! I fell in love the first time I pulled myself onto the wall.
Climbing has had a really big, positive impact on my life. It has made me stronger both physically and mentally. I've also met so many great friends from the climbing community. And most importantly, it makes me happy!
I love traveling and continuing to explore the world.
Finding a lifelong interest and hobby is not easy, but I’m glad I’ve found mine. Climbing is so fun!
I love the outfit designs so much.
For about half of the last year, I was living a digital nomad lifestyle, traveling with friends, and climbing everywhere. It was a great life experience.
