Bio

I am a second-year transfer student from Diablo Valley College! I am majoring in Psychology and minoring in Education in hopes of obtaining a Master’s Degree to become a community college counselor! My ultimate goal is to pay it forward by helping and mentoring those who need guidance in a complex educational system. 

Campus Involvement: Because I love being involved in the community, I have had many campus involvement experiences. I am an active member of the University Honors Program, Regents Scholars Society, UC Davis’ Girl Gains, and Princess Pals! Previously, I was a mentee for the First-Generation Initiative Program, a social media intern for Healthy Davis Together, and a communications intern for UC Davis’ Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Office.

Hobbies: My hobbies consist of going to the gym, binge-watching all streaming services (I have wayyy too many subscriptions, hahaha), listening to K-pop, cooking, hiking, and hanging out with friends! :D 

Advice for Transfer/Reentry Students: My advice to incoming transfer students and reentry students is to remember that you are not alone and have resources to guide you through your educational journey. We are here for YOU, so take advantage!! Also, remember that you deserve to be here, so celebrate all accomplishments and do not trivialize your abilities. :)
