EducationAsian American Studies
Biography/Additional InformationI decided to major in Asian American Studies because I had taken the lower division courses for the major and I realized that much of the material that we had covered in lectures was all new information for me. I wanted to be able to understand the issues that Asian Americans had faced in order to be a better advocate within our community. As a future educator, I want to be able to bring awareness of these issues to my students so that they have a better understanding of Asian American history. As a recent graduate, community activism has helped me by becoming an intern at a nonprofit organization. Additionally, I have been able to apply the knowledge that I learned as an undergrad to my workplace, where we focus on social issues.
