I am a senior majoring in Biomedical Science at UW Tacoma. Being the first-generation college student froma Vietnamese immigrant family has motivated me to explore all the aspects of college. There are many difficulties in regards to language and customs that I have been through, and I’ve learned from them a lot. Therefore, I want to share my experiences with others, especially those who have similar background with me, to help them lessen the burdens or struggles that they might encounter.
I am interested in learning about cultural diversity which is why I am participating in the CFHI Global Health Experiential Learning study abroad program in India this early fall. I also just traveled to Vietnam during the summer, so I am very excited and willing to share my experiences with others after I come back. If you have any questions, come visit me at the Global Affairs Office!
Although I will travel a lot this summer, I am also studying for my PCAT and working on my application for Pharmacy school. I balance my education and self-care with my family and friends. I love trying new foods and baking for my family as well being part of a Catholic church and Vietnamese Student
