To my friends, thank you for always cheering me on, hyping me up, and having my back. I am eternally grateful for having you all by my side through each milestone.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

I absolutely loved my Jan term class, Asian American Voices in Public History. I loved exploring all over the Bay Area going to places like Angel Island and the Oakland Museum while learning about Asian-American history. It was so much fun getting to work with community partners at the Chinese Historical Society of America and eating delicious foods with my friends and classmates.

I will be attending USC for a Master's in Business Taxation with an emphasis in Data and Analytics in the Fall.
