I’m Annie.I was born in Hong Kong in 1969. Our family moved to Washington, D.C. when I was two years old. I have a twin sister and three older sisters. And, we are a loving and tight knit family. At the age of 10, we moved again to the suburbs of Maryland, where I have fond memories of growing up. My dad worked very hard as a chef sometimes juggling two jobs at a time, and my mom was a seamstress. I truly admire my parents’ hard work as well as their determination in keeping our family close and supportive of one another.
I graduated from the University of Maryland with a French Literature degree. My passion for culture and language led me to spend my junior year in college studying abroad in France. It was an incredible experience I would never forget! After graduating, I worked a few jobs in Washington, D.C. ranging from administrative positions to translation coordinator. In 2000, I decided to move to NYC to join three of my sisters who were already living in NYC. I also wanted to surround myself in a more diverse and creative environment. The city that never sleeps continues to intrigue me, and I’ve established myself happily here!
Eleven years ago, I met Neel through a tennis website, and when we met, we immediately hit it off! Not only are we both the younger of our twin siblings, we share similar experiences and enjoy common interests and values. I love to play tennis, hike, read books, visit museums, catch the latest movies and exercise regularly at the gym. As partners, we learn a lot from each other and thrive towards the same goals.
We truly enjoy life and are grateful for what we have. And, now we are ready and excited to welcome a new addition to our family. I would be a great parent because I’m patient, happy, empathetic, understanding, fair and positive. In the past, I was always the go-to babysitter for my nieces and nephew. Even back then I always had a heart and found joy to be around kids. I believe in guiding and inspiring a child, and I look forward to nurturing and caring for this child.
