Have You Met...? Monday (#8): Sufey Chen
In what might be the most unexpected virtual connection in this glorious supernova we like to call the "Internet", allow me to introduce to you an absolutely spectacular person I have had the most unexpectedly random blessing of knowing. She's a force of nature. She's a typhoon of absolute bliss. She's got a smile that could eclipse the sun. She can fold into a size suitable for a carry on for most airlines. And her name is Sufey Chen.
"Infectious" has such a generally weird connotation, but I can't think of a word more positively appropriate for her - she is such a dynamo of positivism and activity that you cannot help but feel energized and catalyzed into action. I've rarely come across a person whose life has already experienced such great works and accomplishments - and she's only twenty. Normally, this would be the point where my brain would explode and I'd ask the universe why I'm such a slacker - - and yet, there's just something about her that doesn't trigger that. Quite the opposite, her efforts towards changing the world into a flowering of its deepest potential lifts you up and makes you feel like it's never too late.
She is a living testament to second chances.
And she teaches Yoga. Yoga, for god's sake. If you're fortunate enough to be local to one of her upcoming workshops, go be bendy. And say hello for me.
