Alice was born in China but moved to the US during elementary school, and she also lived in Sweden somewhere along the way. She originally wanted to be a surgeon working in developing nations. But after somewhat of an early life crisis, she realized the path to becoming a surgeon in the current US health care system is against too many of her moral convictions. So she decided to continue her bioethical studies to find other ways of creating better health care systems across the globe. In her spare time, Alice likes to travel and discover new things, especially food. She enjoys photography, soccer, tennis, and running. She also loves meerkats.
