1st Year | Major: Physiological Science
SEA Admit showed me the greatness of UCLA when I really wasn’t even considering going here, but here I am! I am thankful to SEA Admit for opening my mind and showing me more about my own identity. I am involved in my building’s government council, various clubs, and my favorite things about UCLA are the food and the people! Fun fact: I performed improv poetry when I was at SEA Admit.
San Jose, CA
1st Year | Major: Pre-Business Economics
Attending SEA Admit really helped me learn more about the general, and more specifically, the Southeast Asian community at UCLA. Not only did it reinforce my desire to commit to UCLA, but it also empowered me through discussions of culture, identity, and community. On campus, I am also an Intern and Staff Assistant for the Southeast Asian Campus Learning Education and Retention (SEA CLEAR) project at the Community Programs Office (CPO). Involved in the SEA community through SEA CLEAR, I love how students of color at UCLA embrace and advocate for their respective communities, which creates a distinctly sensible student body that is exclusive to the university.
2nd Year | Major: Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology
I keep finding myself coming back to SEA Admit because I really want to give back to the program that helped my find my way in college (literally, because I’m always getting lost). My favorite thing about UCLA has to be the food, because in order to study well, you gotta eat well. Fun fact: I can pop my elbows. Not sure if that’s fun or gross!
