I will assist the office in two main areas - F1 student advising and programming.
Originally from Guangzhou, China, I first came to the United States as an international student to pursue a Master’s Degree in Communication. After working in a university international office for a while, I found my passion in international student services. I am interested in looking into the cultural complexity between different groups, as well as the nuances between their communication and learning styles. I worked at the international office at The College of Wooster before joining Trinity. In 2015, I received the Outstanding New Professional award at the NAFSA Region VI Conference, which encouraged me to continue to make energetic contributions to the international education field. My goal is to help more international students recognize the resources they can have and the ways to pursue success. During free time I like to play badminton, tennis, and Skype with my family. I like to explore cultures of different countries by travelling and making international friends. I still kept close relationships with many of my former students, and I enjoy being around them, listening to their stories, and cheering for their successes.
