When I first arrived in America, I was a Global Pathways student. Two semesters later, I transferred to the day school and soon switched my major from Psychology to Business.
As an international student, I have experienced the same frustration, excitements, and challenges that accompany attending college abroad. Even though all the difficulties try to block my way, my enthusiasm never ceases. I believe you share the same goal with me: never stop pursuing the dreams. As a dream-pursuer myself, I support you.
Working as a peer instructor for Freshmen Seminar class with the international students this semester, my role switches from a help-seeker to a helper. Whenever you have a bad day, I would love to help you figure out a way to brighten it. As a peer mentor, I hope to play a role in helping you reach your potential!
