Not having lived on campus, I struggled to learn my way around MSU. During my first year, I went to class and once I was done for the day I left home. It was pretty clear to me that that wasn’t the way I wanted to remember college. In the summer of 2013, I joined the Spartan Remix Committee and met Meaghan Kozar (advisor). With her help, I joined APASO and got involved in activism, outreach, and the Asian American community.

I think it’s important to get involve because it’s how we get to learn about ourselves, learn new skills, and meet people. I learned that I am a fighter and I don’t like quitting even when things seem like it’s the end. I was once told that I was insane because I kept doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I learned that sometimes my curiosity gets the best of me sometimes. But these are all the things that make me ME! And through the many years at MSU, I’ve grown to be the best of me.
