Eva immigrated from Hong Kong to a town with few Asians abruptly at age nine, a life-changing, challenging, and beautiful experience. Learning a new language, adapting to a new culture, navigating family immigration dynamics, and being in a cross-cultural marriage are some of the ways God has prepared her to work with both international and American students. Currently, Eva serves as an Associate Director in the International Student Ministry department, helping all InterVarsity chapters engage with international students.

School just started and it’s not what you’ve ever imagined college to be like. Instead of moving into the dorms, you’re stuck at home. Instead of all the welcome events with free food at the beginning of the year, you’re attending one Zoom call after another. It’s easy to focus on all the things we’re missing out on this season.

If you’re like me, you may be struggling with FOMO, worry, and complaints.

While it's important to acknowledge what's hard and mourn what we've lost, it's equally if not more important to recognize the gift of the pandemic as the new school year begins. Perhaps there are unprecedented opportunities God has for us during this unique season.
