Three Questions With Maykou Ly

  • What do you enjoy doing outside of academia?
    • I enjoy spending time with family. Particularly my sisters, where we take day trips on the weekends to explore nearby cities or to try new restaurants.
  • If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
    • I would love to be able to teleport. To be able to travel anywhere in the world and explore new environments without the hassle of a busy crowd in the airport or sitting for long periods of time in an airplane seems ideal to me.
  • If you could switch lives with any fictional character for a day, who would it be and why?
    • I would like to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid for a day. I think it would be such an amazing experience to be able to breath underwater and explore the ocean floor.
