Welcome to my website! This being my first official post, I would like to take the time to elaborate upon the selection of my logo. The initials “LJ” stand for my name, Lorena James. The three symbols beneath represent my Chinese name “金兰睿.“ This name was given to me in fifth grade in my first Chinese class. Today, I continue to enjoy learning the language and diving into Chinese culture as a traveler. I chose the symbols in my logo represent each character in my name: the first “金 (jin)“ means gold; the second “兰 (lan)” means orchid; and the third “睿(rui)” means wise.” Having related to these characters and symbols for the last nine years, they remind me to strive for greatness, look for the beauty in life, and seek guidance from the wisdom around me. What do these symbols mean to you?
