Hi, I’m Sel!

The Universe is made of stories, not of atoms.

I blog about my adventures as a Harvard College freshman, in crunchy, sun-baked stories & through candid, messy reflections. I’m Chinese by heritage, New Zealander by birth, and Singaporean by choice.

Apart from creative writing pieceslife updates, and the occasional college application tip, I write on every fascinating thing the universe shepherds into my life: travels, choices, books, the craft of writing, ideasdramas, my ongoing college experiences (Freshman Fall | Winter Break | Freshman Spring), and many more (see the tags in the blog sidebar). Brevity is a new feature I’ve started on the ideas I encounter at Harvard—check it out : )

Thanks for being here and allowing my stories to enter your life. Have happy adventures!

Lots of Love,
