Why do you love UCI?

I love UCI because of the various forms of diversity present in our community. There is sure to be a resource center, student organization, or student/professional mentors that resonate with your interests, experiences, and/or identity. I especially appreciate the professors I have had who recognize students’ diverse personal experiences and support our academic and professional development.

How can you be a successful Anteater?

In order to be successful it is important that you actively learn from your mistakes, therefore set appropriate academic and personal limits and/or goals. In addition, form or build on your experiences and explore many on-campus opportunities (research, mentorship, social clubs, etc.) as these experiences will help you grow as a student and as a person.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I enjoy listening to Korean R&B and Spanish indie pop!
