I'm pretty simple! Boba, stationary, and memes make me smile.

Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Hi there! I'm Lena. Welcome to my Sparrows profile.
I recently graduated from San Jose State University with a degree in Business Administration, concentration in marketing. (Oye! Quite a long title)
I'm currently looking for a full-time position in marketing while learning a little more about UX design.
On the fun side, I enjoy trying out new boba places, having fun little adventures, and doing a bit of decorative bullet journaling.

If you want to get to know me a bit more, scroll down! You can also connect with me on Linkedin or email me at lenatran242@gmail.com.
Nice to meet you!
