President, Asian Awareness Group
Why are you a part of AAG? “AAG created a community that allowed me to embrace my Asian identity, learn about myself and other Asian cultures, break down stereotypes regarding Asian identities, and participate in major campus programing. I also hoped that I could provide this community for other students and build upon this amazing organization's strong foundation and presence on campus.”
What do you like about Albion College? “Albion College itself is encouraging entity; the College works hard to listen and provide for students, especially those with underrepresented identities.”
