My true authentic self

Let me tell you a secret! I actually hate taking photos of myself which is why I keep using old photos, but I know I really should try to show more of myself here to let people know who I am! The irony when I take photos of myself for YouTube thumbnails. 😹

But let’s be real, I don’t actually look like this on a normal day because I only wear makeup for my YouTube videos! https://youtube.com/c/ChristineWong This is actually a rare moment I even wore makeup going outside! I mostly wear makeup if I’m filming and I happened to wear makeup this particular day because I was filming a weekend in my life. 😂

But I have to say my brows have always been lacking and I was born with super sparse brows and I also included a photo with absolutely no makeup. I’ve had micropigmentation done 3 years ago, so my brows are really catfishing you. 😂😂😂

Do you show your true self? Do you wear makeup? Honestly, while I’m all about natural beauty (let’s be real, it’s because I’m lazy and suck at makeup), I also believe in creative and personal expression, so if you love a full face of makeup, go for it! The most I do is really my brows before I did micropigmentation, but what are you insecure about? Do you embrace it or do you fight it?

EVERYTHING About Smart Business NFC Cards: FULL REVIEW & UNBOXING of OVOU CARD

This is EVERYTHING you need to know about Smart Business NFC Cards! I did a FULL review and UNBOXING of the Ovou Card. From the purchasing process to the unboxing to even the setup and test run, I did the whole thing. I got into this because I was so fascinated over NFC Smart Business Cards when I came across them during an Instagram Ad! I used to be so excited to get my own business card because I thought it would make me legit, and then I realized how unreasonable they were when I changed job titles or wanted to promote something new. So I reached out to a bunch of these NFC smart business card companies, and Ovou responded! Thank you Ovou for sponsoring this video!

Joshua Tree Day 5 & 6: Salvation Mountain, Bombay Beach, Saltan Sea, Palm Springs, Going Home!

Last Vlog of the trip! I miss us already!

My friends and I went to Joshua Tree in August, and it was an experience I never would have imagined. Hiking, bonfires, the struggles, the highs, the stories, and the inside jokes, this trip brought us together like family. Even looking back, it seems surreal, and even looking at these photos, it looks like I’m looking at someone else.

3-4 groups that have never met together as a whole came together and we built bonds we never expected. Here’s to Winter 2022!

In this particular vlog, we branched off and checked out Salvation Mountain, Bombay Beach, Saltan Sea, and Palm Springs! Since we’re a few groups that came together and bonded as BLOOD, we even bought matching outfits and surprised the other group that stayed back at the Joshua Tree airbnb and their reaction was priceless!

My Consulting Interview Process

Consulting recruiting season is here! Around this time four years ago was when I had my first round of interviews! Here was my process when pursuing the TDP at Accenture!

I do want to note that a lot can happen in four years. We even had the covid-19 pandemic! This will greatly change how firms approach the recruiting process to adapt and improve!

How was your process? What are you most scared of within the process? Let me know down below in the comments!

I also did make a video recently on how to prepare and succeed in the consulting recruitment process, so make sure to check for that on my YouTube channel!

Joshua Tree Day 3 & 4: Ryan Mountain Sunrise Hike, Keys View, Arch Rock Trail, Cholla Cactus Garden

My friends and I went to Joshua Tree in August, and it was an experience I never would have imagined. Hiking, bonfires, the struggles, the highs, the stories, and the inside jokes, this trip brought us together like family. Even looking back, it seems surreal, and even looking at these photos, it looks like I’m looking at someone else.

3-4 groups that have never met together as a whole came together and we built bonds we never expected. Here’s to Winter 2022!

In this particular vlog, we woke up at 4:30 AM for a sunrise hike at Ryan Mountain, shopped in Joshua Tree for Michelle’s cowboy outfit, Keys View sunset, and Joshua Tree Saloon! Then we actually had a chill day and did a Family dinner where we cooked and baked together and then headed out to Arch Rock trail, Cholla Cactus Garden, and then decorated cupcakes! Check it out!

I’m training for a triathlon!

I like hiking, but to be honest, I’m a bit of a crybaby when it comes to potentially tripping, slipping, or to put it simply, DYING. 😹

Meanwhile things like cliff diving, skydiving, and jetskiing don’t phase me.

I had a car accident during my sophomore year spring break that permanently damaged my ankle. I fractured it, and it was so bad, they suggested surgery. I ended up opting out of it due to long term complications and healed it naturally through a cast and boot for 3-4 months. All while dealing with Boston’s long stretch of a campus let alone not being able to wash my foot so you can already imagine the smells! 🤢

I always have been a strong swimmer and biker/cyclist, but I always hated running or anything that puts in a lot of pressure and impact on my ankle and even my joints like my knees. Hiking is included!

But now I’m facing my fears and seeing a personal trainer so I can finally train for a triathlon! Even if I walk it, I’m completely fine with that, but this is the first step!

Boy this journey has been crazy!

It’s messages like this that really brighten up my day and make what I’m doing worth it to do. I actually made a shift this month where I decreased my YouTube video release schedule to just once a week instead of twice and a podcast episode every other week rather than every week. I wanted to make a focus more on Technology Consulting Community’s resources, events, and programs.

We are kicking off our second wave of the pro Bono consulting program next week and so excited!

Recruitment season is also here, and make sure to check out my free content on YouTube, Instagram, podcast, and Technology Consulting Community (TCC)!

Joshua Tree Day 1 & 2: Farmer’s Market, Skull Rock Nature Trail, Hidden Valley Nature Trail

My friends and I went to Joshua Tree in August, and it was an experience I never would have imagined. Hiking, bonfires, the struggles, the highs, the stories, and the inside jokes, this trip brought us together like family. Even looking back, it seems surreal, and even looking at these photos, it looks like I’m looking at someone else.

3-4 groups that have never met together as a whole came together and we built bonds we never expected. Here’s to Winter 2022!

In this particular vlog, Addison, Sally, Tommy, Hanna and I fly out of Laguardia Airport in NYC to Palm Springs International Airport and then take a car rental to Joshua Tree. We joined up with Michelle N. Lam, Collin Miller, Olivia Lam, and Luc Wittenberg! We went to our amazing airbnb, and then we went to the Farmer’s Market where we cooked our own lunch and made our homemade mojitos! Then we went to Skull Rock nature trail where we ran into drama due to no service and then we did the Hidden Valley Nature Trail in darkness because we missed the sunset due to the drama.
