Summer Plans:

I will be traveling to Japan with my parents for a few days. Then, I am hoping to do an internship in my hometown for two months.

Post-Graduation Plans:

I am still debating if I should work or go to grad school after graduating from Agnes. For now, I would really like to work first. Let's see how it goes!

Advising Tips:

To be honest, my transition to college was exceptionally tough as I experienced not only shocks to college but also various aspects of cultural shocks. My advice to all of you will then be: be prepared for being "shocked"! However, please feel free to contact me, other peer advisors, summit advisors and even professors if you have any questions or concerns during summer and throughout the semester. Things I have learnt during my two-year experience in Agnes are that: people are so nice here and things will only get worse if you just keep them to yourself.

To me, academic success is…

when I am learning things I like.
