History of Public Policy Major
Asian American Studies Major


I’m a 3rd year at UCSB, and I also work as a Member-at-Large of the ASUCSB Judicial Council, a Peer Mentor for the Undergraduate Mentor Program, and Secretary Chair of the Sociology Association. In my free time I love reading, watching Netflix, lying in one place for hours at a time, and chilling with bubble tea.

The Asian American Studies major at UCSB is probably my greatest discovery in college! My very first quarter I took AS AM 2 with Professor Park, and that class just changed the way I looked at the world around me. I love how interdisciplinary the major is – I’ve taken classes about law, politics, gender, art, and sociology, and I have never left an AS AM class without feeling like I have learned something new. I’m hoping to pursue a career in law or public policy in the future, and I can say without a doubt that the classes I have taken in this major have been some of the most enlightening classes I have taken at UCSB!
