Hi, and welcome to my little digital diary about life in Asia! My name is Cherith but I go by Tehiya online and when I go home (my mom will randomly call me this). I’m just an American girl living, working, and learning Chinese in China.
Asia has become my second home and I plan on living here for quite a long time, if not forever. I am currently in my 20s, unmarried and looking for adventure. My best friend and I have our own book publishing company called Red Empress Publishing in which I create most of our books’ cover art.
You can view my art and design portfolio here.
As of writing this, I am living in Shenzhen, have two kittens and an affinity for eating and taking pictures of food (a common theme of my social media accounts). I love running, dancing (albeit poorly), and being trying to be as positive as possible.
The main purposes for my blog/vlogs:
- To give my friends and family an easy way to be part of my life from afar.
- As a challenge to myself. I hate putting myself out there, but I think by not doing so I’ve hindered my own growth as well as distanced myself without meaning to.
- To hopefully help others through my own experiences.
- For my future self and family to look back on.
Hopefully this will be a fun and informative way for people to get to know more about China, me, and my life in Asia. ^_^
