Hi, I’m Jei-Nhy. Writer. Researcher. Life long learner.

My name is Jei-Nhy and I am a curious soul.

I continuously strive to live a more mindful lifestyle. This includes living with intention and purpose opposed to living a reactionary lifestyle. I focus on my values and apply them to the decisions I make throughout the day to be sure I am staying true to who I am and striving to live my best self therefore living the best life I can live. After all, we only have one life.

Curiosity is a trait I value and nurture. I am currently learning Norwegian with the help of Duo Lingo and Olly Richards. I love genealogy and researching my family’s history. I enjoy the occasional cross-stitching project and I’ve been collecting postcards since grade school–from places I travel to and from others around the world through Postcrossing.com and pen pals.

What’s in a Name?

So, my name. Just a tad bit unusual? My name is pronounced jay-nigh. It’s a Chinese name with a Chinese spelling, given to me by my Hawaiian-Chinese grandparents, and comes from the Ingrid Bergman movie The Inn of the Sixth Happiness.The name was inspired by the actual life of Gladys Aylward and means “one loved by all” or “beloved.”
