Raymund (Ray) Lee is passionate about intercultural dialogue, linguistics, public health, and finishing books he started reading but abandoned halfway through for an indiscriminate reason. In high school, he was involved in providing volunteer services to underserved communities, founded an organization with the goal of teaching the Chinese and Korean languages to young students, and shaved his head to raise funds in support of childhood cancer research for the St. Baldrick's Foundation.

Ray is inspired by the how big the world is, both figuratively and literally, and he hopes to broaden his perspective of the globe.
