What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

Pickles, sushi, seafood. Guacamole. All fruit.

How would you describe your level of Chinese? (Eg it's my native language OR I don't speak it OR I learned some dialect from my family but little Mandarin, OR I can speak a few words, simple conversations, etc.)

Native speaker. :)

What kind of events and activities would you be interested in? What would you like to do at our events?

I would like to organize activities where people can practice speaking in front of a group (public speaking). Toastmasters meetings are a great way to get started!

What could this group provide for you that no other Meetup could?

Meeting and learning from other bilingual speakers who offer diverse perspectives from different cultures.

Where did you grow up? How did you learn Chinese? Tell us your story.

I grew up near Confucius' hometown but have been here in the US for many years. I have learned a lot from different cultures and am very open-minded. For example, I love Japanese, Korean, and Thai foods. My friends include Buddhists, Christians, atheists, Jews, and Arabs.

Introduction

I teach mandarin Chinese at college level and enjoy public speaking, dancing, and learning about spiritual growth and healing.
