Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Hello! My name is Tiffany and I'm a rising junior at UC Berkeley! A little bit about my background is that I come from a low-income + minority neighborhood and my parents are also both refugees from Vietnam. Once at college, I grew in so many ways because I got exposed to different things, thoughts, and people and I quickly learned how some individuals seemed so far ahead career-wise and stuff like that. I did get into the business school at Berkeley, though I really don't know what the possibilities are / exactly how to narrow things down. During my first two years at Cal, I've been really involved in community organizing, policy work, D&I / Organizational Behavior research because I'm super passionate about helping the underserved + marginalized community due to my background. As a result, I thought HR or something along those lines would be up my alley. Outside of school, I would like to think I'm funny and overall a happy-go-lucky gal! I also love going on picnics and enjoying the outdoors! I also am a huge animal lover, and I'm in a bunch of dog and cat facebook groups haha.
