Hello everyone! My name is Lee Ling Unitt and I am graduating as a double major in Legal Studies and Anthropology with a concentration in Culture. I’m very passionate about traveling, photography, fashion, and a large variety of outdoor hobbies. One other thing I find very important in my life is enjoying the nuances of human connection. Whether that be fleeting moments with strangers or long intimate conversations with friends or family – I cherish it all. That is the main reason why I love Anthropology and our podcast, Anthro.mp3, so much (shameless plug, sorry). They both focus on the beauty of shared humanity, what more can you simply ask for?
