Political Science Major

Asian American Studies Major

I also serve as an Off-Campus Senator in UCSB's Associated Students, work in the Exec Board of UCSB's Model United Nations club, and work as an API Mentor for Anacapa's Asian Pacific Islander Floor. When I'm not running between meetings and class, you can find me at home indulging in my ardent passions of napping, eating, and watching Netflix (and chilling).

I could talk for days as to why I chose to be an Asian American Studies major (which is why you should visit my office hours!). But ever since I took AS AM 1 my very first quarter with Professor Zhao, I was drawn in by the amazing people I met in the department. On the 5th floor of HSSB, you'll find a welcoming community of the most qualified and passionate faculty on campus. Everyone in the department wants you to succeed, and if you come by the department you'll find endless guidance and support (and bowls of candy).
