Q: What inspired you to join HKN?
I remember that the first time I heard about HKN is from my sophomore lab TA, he is smart, he told me a lot of benefits for joining HKN and it will be a good thing that you can put on your resume.
Q: Where is your hometown and favorite place on the island?
Diwen's hometown is Shang Guo Cun, Fu Jian, China. Therefore he is Chinese. Diwen's favorite place on the island will be Waianae because it is his hometown on this island and there are no tall buildings, which makes you feel less stress.
Q: What video game / movie / TV show would you want to live in and why?
I would want to live in League of Legends because no matter how bad you are at your current game if you have the courage to start a new one, it will be a brand new start where you can learn from your mistakes and enjoy your current game. Also, no matter how good you are at your current game, your success doesn't carry over to the next game (I just enjoy being toxic).
Q: What would you like to accomplish the most from your “bucket” list?
I think I would want to travel to somewhere that's neither Hawai'i nor China to just explore the world around me and learn different perspectives.
