Lian McGuane

Hola hola! My name is Lian and I am bilingual, but not in Chinese. I was adopted from Hunan, China and I grew up and currently live in Binghamton, NY. I graduated SUNY Broome and Geneseo University with an associate’s degree in Physical Therapy and a bachelor’s degree in Special Education and Spanish. My interests and hobbies are constantly changing but I love watching anime and reality TV shows, playing video games on my Switch, exploring new parks, and going on long hikes, runs, and bike rides to relax. Some fun facts about me are that I studied in Spain, rode horses competitively, and have 4 pets!  

I’ve been involved with Adopteen since 2017 North Carolina, and loved it so much I returned for 2018 Minnesota and 2019 Colorado! The following years I was busy at college but I’m excited for my return this summer and hope to create the welcoming and safe space I experienced back at my first Adopteen where I finally felt a sense of belonging!
