    Favorite college activity: Participating in Student Orgs! In addition to making new friends and attending fun events together, I also learned valuable skills while in the Hmong Student Association like how to conduct meetings, plan programs and collaborate with Campus administrators to make effective decisions that impacted campus!

    Favorite local restaurant: Anything on University Avenue in St. Paul is delicious! I always love getting a fresh Banh Mi sandwich or a steaming bowl of hot pho (especially in the winter!) at any of the great locally owned Vietnamese restaurants. They are also priced perfectly for the budget-conscious!

    Favorite fact about Hamline: It's true what they say...at Hamline, "the student directs their destiny, we provide the momentum!" I am so proud to be a part of a community where professors are so engaged with the students they interact with, where opportunities for collaboration happen both in and out of the classroom, and to be on a campus where diversity, inclusiveness and passion all come together on 54 acres all right in the beautiful capitol city of St. Paul!
