Hello there, my name is Zhang Qiang.
I am a 22-year-old, and a journalism student in New York University. I was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. I'm currently finishing up on my dissertation so I can graduate, and this news blog is a part of that to some extent.
I took up journalism because I enjoy telling people stories. I guess I took it from my dad and my stepmom. My dad, a first generation Chinese, told us these amazing stories when I was a kid. My stepmom was a news reporter back in the day so I get a lot of help from her.
Anyway, I couldn't be a writer because I don't really have a knack for fictional writing. I like meeting new people and travelling, so journalism will take me where I want to be.
The diversity of people I've grown up around in Jacksonville really opened my eyes to the large number of stories there are to be told. Living in NY in itself a form of travel, there's always something to do and someone to talk to.
What else do you want to know about me...I am a fan of cloud storage which is why I store my data on services like Copy.com.
This weight loss blog is the result of my interest in fitness and healthy eating. My goal is to lose 25 lbs by next summer. This site will bring news from the diet world. But it will contain more than just news from the US, but as well as the rest of the world. If anything, my year long trip to China taught me that there is so much more to the world than what we know. Besides, there's always something to learn from anywhere and everywhere.
I'll also be sharing with you some stuff I find on the Internet that I find interesting. No cute cat videos, I promise. Or maybe, if you ask.
