While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were

My family is the backbone of my success, and without them, I wouldn't be where I am now. My parents have always been my number one supporters and have pushed me to do my best and try new things. This degree is for us! I want to give a special shoutout to my sister, lavish line and Mike for always having my back!

My favorite SMC memory is

One of my favorite memories at SMC was when I went to Friendship Games in Fullerton with APASA. It was fun to compete with other schools in various games and see so many people come together to celebrate their culture. This event led to relationships with people that I now consider family. Being part of APASA has helped me learn more about myself and other Asian cultures.

I'm looking forward to most

After graduation, I look forward to taking a much needed break before entering the workforce.
