Si-Long Chen, nicknamed Fox, was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan. Growing up, she lived with her mom and her sister in Hsinchu Science and Industrial Park. As a child, Si-Long has been traveling back and forward between the U.S. and Taiwan; it wasn’t until 2006 when she decided to stay in the U.S. permanently to advance her education.
Under the guardianship and the care of her aunt and uncle in Martinez, Ga., Si-Long attended Lakeside High School. After graduating from high school in 2009, she matriculated at Augusta State University (Now Augusta University) to study Communications and Fine Arts, and she graduated in May of 2013. During her school year of 2012, she was naturalized as a U.S. citizen. Since she graduated, she has been working in digital marketing and communications field. When Si-Long is not in the office of her day time job, she goes around the community to take photos as a freelance artist.
In 2018, she returned to work at Augusta University and decided to pursuit a masters degree there as well. She hopes to graduate in spring 2021, all while working a full-time job and taking photos as a side hobby.
