Personal Biography

Why do you love UCI?

I love UCI because it is filled with such incredible people! The professors are super caring and always want you to do great. Most of the professors have a passion for what they do which makes their classes even more fun to be in and you get to see the dedication for teaching. In addition to that, they provide great opportunities that we can take advantage of. My peers are also kind and caring. Everyone is willing to help one another and be each other’s support system. The people on campus make UCI a better place to be at and a wonderful experience!

How can you be a successful Anteater?

You can be a successful Anteater by reaching out for help when it is needed! Even though it could be a little intimidating at first it is very helpful and it’ll become easier the more you do it. Everyone has questions or needs help, it’s normal! Professors enjoy when students attend their office hours or ask for help. Academic advisors are also there if you ever need help! UCI provides students with great resources that they can go to if they need help. I believe that reaching out for help shows willingness to put time to understand things and do better. Never feel bad for reaching out for help, especially when there are people willing to help!

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I love to try new food and go to amusement parks! I love to eat Japanese curry and KBBQ!
