As the Class of 2017 prepare to celebrate their success, meet a few of the graduates and remember the ones we’ve highlighted over the last few weeks.
From my involvement and activism with the Asian American Student Association and the Queer and Trans Students of Color groups, to being a part of the creation of the new School for Cultural and Social Transformation, I was able to find family and community.
Life is short. We’ve got this one chance to make positive changes on our planet.
In May 2007, I was assaulted and nearly died from a traumatic brain injury. I was placed in a medically induced coma for a month. They didn’t know if I was going to make it.
I grew up in a very international family. My dad is from Iran, my mom is Portuguese and my step-mom is from the Philippines. I came to law school with this in mind and this has been my entire focus here, even my involvement in the Pro Bono Initiative has been centered around clinics for refugees and immigrants.
Dental school anywhere is a wild adventure, but when you’re in the first class at a brand new dental school, it’s even more of a wild ride. I wanted to make sure I broadened my experiences in school.
My wife Cassidy and I met in gen chem. I was her TA. For part of our first date I took her to the ACS lab and showed her some demos.
After I served my country for two years, I didn’t want to go back to the U.S. to finish my architecture degree. I wanted to stay in Korea for a while and audition for ‘K-pop Star,’ but after three failed auditions, I decided to go back to school.
Ever since I was a little girl I’ve wanted to catch bad guys.
