Yiting Chai graduated summa cum laude from Penn State in 2015 with dual degrees in advertising and economics. During college, Chai devoted herself to an intense research on the limited access to America's higher education as well as sundry activities like the Penn State Dance Marathon and a marketing campaign for Aurora Museum.
Out of a sheer passion for media studies, Chai tried her hand in Xinhua News Agency and, after graduation, secured a full-time job in the marketing department of a large education corporation. As Chai grew increasingly spellbound by campaign planning, she opted to pursue a further study on media studies and set media effects as her target specialization.
Fun fact: Born on Feb. 29, Chai is, technically speaking, just past 6 because she can celebrate her birthday only once every four years
