About: this article was voted by HCMSU as the best feature of the 2016 spring semester.
In the Beginning
In my short 19 years, I haven’t gotten many opportunities to travel outside of my homeland, but I have been able to connect with foreign exchange students and first-generation friends.

This shows in the album cover, as she is depicted lying across a car with over-sized sunglasses hanging off her nose. She also has a large, floppy sunhat haphazardly placed upon her head, delivering her perusal persona of an exasperated femme fatale.
Articles I have written for the Her Campus website that focus on relevant social issues and influential students on MSU’s campus. I’ve been promoted twice in three years: from staff writer to artistic assistant to Logistics Director.
