Welcome!

 

Hello there, thanks for visiting! My name is Fiona Gan, a third year engineering science student at the University of Toronto. This web portfolio showcases most of my works since the day I picked up Adobe (R) Photoshop. I have also completed several side projects in fashion, writing, crafts and performing arts, which eventually inspired and prepared me to pursue Engineering studies. I have learned quite a lot from 2 years of engineering through solving real-life problems, working on group projects, and marketing for the largest student-run career fair on campus! Have a look, you might even find some of them interesting to look at as well!

 

Vita Agrodolce ?

 

I do wish for a Vita Dolce (sweet life), but … let’s be honest here, sweetness in life doesn’t come without bitterness beforehand. We all need to keep battling with ourselves to get through sweat, rejection and defeat to build up perseverance. Just like “A calm sea does not make a skilled sailor”, victory does not taste right if one didn’t experience the hardships. Regardless if one has achieved success or just getting started, one shall not speed through every process but rather keep at a consistent and moderate pace, to make time for caring and appreciating the things and people around. I would like to say that this is my life philosophy (so far), or you could view it as an interpretation of my given name.

 

Feel free to look around

 

This portfolio is for you to browse, or perhaps pick up a thing or two in the process. However, the truth is, I built this for myself =). It’s a tiny landmark on the World Web that patiently  teaches me and reminds of who I am, what I have done, who I am with, where I have been and what I can achieve at the most puzzling yet fearless stage of my life. The chance that I have given to myself to complete a bitter-sweet life.

 

 

Live Bitter-sweetly
