“One step at a time.”

Nickname: #3 OASIS

Big Sister: Amanda “ALOHA” Wong (Virginia Commonwealth University)

Major: Architecture
Year: Class of 2010
Hometown: West Palm Beach, FL
Ethnicity: Chinese

Positions held in aKDPhi: Alumnae Chair (Fall 2009)

What I like: Drawing, painting, designing, photographing, photoshopping, eating, beaching, sleeping, traveling.

What I do: Architecture Intern at MTA, Teaching Assistant for UF’s DEP, and Graduate Student at Harvard’s GSD.

Why I joined aKDPhi: As an architecture major, it was easy for me to get consumed by schoolwork and to stay in the studio all day and night. I saw the interest group as a way for me to balance my undergrad experience, to become more involved in the Asian American community, and to leave a positive impact on the UF campus. What kept me in it as time went on, however, were the 14 other amazing girls I met along the way. I feel lucky to call such genuine, talented, diverse and wonderful women my Sisters.
