Counselor, IMPACT AAPI

LCW 102
I was raised in the Central Valley and grew up in Stockton, California, as a daughter of refugee parents. My family settled in the United States in the '70s and most of my family is from Laos. As a first-generation college student, it has been a dream of mine to be in an environment where I can support students and make impactful change in higher education. Before I entered the counseling field, I’ve always had a passion for serving others. I worked for various nonprofit organizations around the Bay Area and these past experiences drove me towards pursuing a counseling degree. Educational equity, social justice, inclusion and advocacy are deeply rooted in my work as a counselor, and I am passionate and committed to serving students at De Anza College
