Hailing from Vancouver, BC, Amelia is a 20-year-old Chinese-Canadian currently pursuing a simultaneous program in Biology and Business at the University of California, Berkeley. She is deeply passionate about sustainability and spreading environmental awareness. As the front cover of Avessa Magazine’s Summer 2021 issue, she discusses her journey of realizing this passion and how she is planning on achieving her goals.
Although she has a vast variety of interests, her all-time favourite hobby would have to be exploring different genres of dance. In fact, Amelia has been dancing since the age of 3 and won the gold medal at the International Models & Talent (IMTA) Dance Competition. She has also previously competed in Rose Queen and Princess Pageant hosted in Oregon State and was crowned the 2020 Miss Chinese Rose Princess.
