Molecular Biology and Computer Science

I was born and raised in Southern California. Both my parents came over from Vietnam in 1992 and knew very limited English.

My father is a manager of an embroidery company and my mother is a cashier at a local supermarket. Growing up, I was primarily a student-athlete, participating in swimming and basketball. I am now a member of the gymnastics team. I think the most important lesson I have learned from my experiences is that success is a natural byproduct of practice, hard work, and determination. I am currently a liaison for the Quest Scholars Network and am dedicated to providing opportunities for higher education to hard-working low-income students in America.
