Before Beloit

Involved in many leadership roles very early on: being a class representative, Orientation Leader for Ten Plus Program, director for a school play, etc.

Coming out of high school, I grew as a person. I learned to communicate with people from different backgrounds, practice presenting myself as a team player and a group leader, and was highly aware of my role and responsibilities with my society.

“Even though you are not yet sure what you want to do in the future, it is okay. Try to stay focused and put all your heart in everything you are committed to”

 

Year 1

Declared both of my majors - Quantitative Economics and Education & Youth Studies

Founded Beloit International Students Career Services organization (BISCS), making professional career building and resources tailored for international students more accessible

“Jessica Fox Wilson - the Director of Career Development at Career & Community Engagement Center - connected me with two other Beloiters who later became the other two BISCS co-founders, and my lifelong special friends”

 

Year 2

Organized Global Beloiters through BISCS - a panel discussion and networking opportunity that connects current international students with international alumni, whom we flew in from all across the world.

Took Quantitative Methods with Professor Jermaine Moulton - which introduces me to Data Analytics and sparks my interest in this promising field.

Presented the result of my research about Child mortality in Vietnam at Student Symposium, with the help of professor JingJing Lou and professor David Segura of the Education & Youth Studies Department.

Finished my double major degree one semester early and focus on searching for job in the middle of COVID-19 pandemic.

“I appreciate that professors at Beloit allowed me opportunities to pursue the topics that are meaningful to me and always challenge me intellectually.”

After Beloit
