This semester, I am working as a Program Assistant for a Political Science course, called Applied Politics, with James, a fellow Dornsife Ambassador. We help Professor Crigler, who teaches the course, with the logistic aspects of the class — sending class emails, updating the course’s webpage, and more. What is even more exciting is that [...]

I walk into the maze of offices. Men in pressed suits and women with neat hairstyles pass by. Most of the decor is grey scale with occasionally a pop of color. The artificial lighting is a bit daunting, and I wonder how it is that I got here. This is quite the change from working [...]

This past spring semester was very busy, but also really rewarding and fun! For the Thematic Option program I’m in, I took a really interesting class called Aural Culture. It involved studying sound from a physics perspective (sound waves and acoustics) as well as music’s cultural implications. For my final, I interviewed a researcher at [...]

I had finished several midterms for my classes and was just completely exhausted by the time Friday before spring break rolled around.

Needless to say, many late nights were spent studying away at Leavey Library [...]

We organize a  handball game to support Troy Camp, USC’s undergraduate-run philanthropy that uses tutoring, after-school programming, adventures in LA, and a week-long summer camp to inspire  local elementary school students to pursue [...]

Ever since I joined the International Visitors Council of Los Angeles as an intern, I have always wanted to meet with the visitors that I usually write proposals for, or, after I have become a part-time project assistant, draft the itineraries for. Unfortunately, I was never able to find time for it in addition to [...]

This semester, I have had the wonderful opportunity of being accepted into the organization known as Helenes. As an all women’s service organization and “the official hostesses of USC”, this club has one of the most competitive application processes I have ever been through. Out of 300 applicants, only 25 luckily ladies were selected — and I was [...]

I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be a part of many amazing organizations here at USC, but my favorite organization is easily Best Buddies. The Best Buddies chapter at USC is connected to Lanterman High School, a school a few blocks from campus, which is for children with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Those in Best [...]
