I was born and raised in Bremerton, Washington, and am a first-generation college graduate and graduate student in my family. I was very involved in clubs and organizations in college, including the Filipino-American Student Association at Washington State, where I grew to love and appreciate my culture and upbringing. Throughout my time in college, I fell in love with the idea of working in higher education to help students navigate the complex world of higher education, thanks to the help that I received from various staff and faculty throughout my time as an undergraduate student. Because of this passion, I decided two years ago to pursue my Master's Degree and am currently set to graduate in 2022!
