BIO
Growing up in an immigrant household, I knew at a young age the importance of investing myself into my studies. In high school, I kept busy by taking a plethora of AP classes, participating in several sports, and throwing myself into music. I started the college process early, and from hours of dedicated essay writing and consulting counselors, I earned a spot here at Wesleyan! Like I did in San Francisco, I continue to interrogate cultural prejudices and issues through dialogue with my fellow peers at 200 Church, a program house that prioritizes community based living through social justice. Since my first semester, I’ve found myself lucky enough to join several clubs on campus, got to take part in filming a movie on campus as associate producer, and am working on making WesFest an amazing experience!

WHY WES
Prior to my sophomore year in high school, both my family and I expected to stay on the West Coast for college. It wasn’t until I met a Wes alum that I decided to research the university, and subsequently found myself absolutely in love with Wesleyan. I found Wes students to be driven, passionate, and genuinely invested in what they were learning. All in all, Wesleyan felt nothing short of home to me, and coming here has been the best thing to happen to me.
