I have loved the thrill of encountering cultures since I was a kid. The moments of intercultural connection, from learning to cook a new cuisine to practicing a new language with a stranger on a train, have led me to a career helping international students study in the United States. After college, I started working in international admission at both The George Washington University and UCLA before finding my way to USC. In addition to my work in admission, I am pursuing a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the USC Price School of Public Policy.
USC provides all of the benefits of a small liberal arts college with the resources of a large research institution. Add the global, diverse city of Los Angeles to the mix, and you have one of the most outstanding universities in the world.
Think of the application process as your first college class. You will be asked to do research, write papers, and be self-reflective on your future. Although it can be stressful, try to enjoy the experience. You are making a big, exciting decision that will change the trajectory of your life.
