What is your favorite part of UW?
The people! Being an international student and only coming here for college, I did not know anyone but people at UW are so welcoming! I got a lot of help throughout the years in college and it’s just heartwarming to be so accepted even with a different cultural background! Not to mention the diversity we’re seeing at UW! 

How did you get involved with ASUW?
I started as a committee member of the Student Activities Fee committee (SAF) to being the vice chair of that. Even though I was not in ASUW, I get to have interaction with them during their budget submission and I am very interested in the services they provided! I then applied to be in this role!

What does your job entail?
As the Finance and Budget Director, my job consists of being the chief advisor for board finance and overlook the entities’s budget! ASUW also provide special appropriation funding to RSOs so I work with RSOs as well! 

What are your goals for the future, beyond UW?
I am a people person and my goal would definitely be working closely with a team! I am hoping to work as project/program manager in the technology industry. I am also hoping to do a master degree on informatics, potentially after a year of working! Last but not least, as a philosophy major, I would love to continue my study on that after getting a few years of working experience!
