Hong Kong artist Sam­son Young stud­ied mu­sic, phi­los­o­phy, and gen­der stud­ies at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Syd­ney and earned his doc­tor­ate in com­po­si­tion at Prince­ton.

I feel like I’m cheating if I say I am a model, I am a teacher, I am a boxer, I’m an artist, I am a beauty queen, I feel like I’m nothing even though I’m all of that and more. I am a chameleon, I am an actress, I live in contrasts all the time, I’m a fighter, I am female, I am alone, I don’t know…how else does one define oneself?
