Joseph is a first-year graduate student at Rossier School of Education; he is pursuing a Master of Education in Postsecondary Administration and Student Affairs. He grew up in Cerritos, CA and has a background of academic advising, counseling, tutoring, research, and assessment. In the summer of 2013, Joseph taught English to university students in China, an experience that gave him the opportunity to understand different cultural dynamics and construct a curriculum that was both engaging and fun. Joseph serves on Rossier Student Organization, his department's graduate student government branch. He is also a graduate intern at the Career Center and is a fieldwork intern at Asian Pacific American Student Services. He likes to stay involved in the academic community, but also is able to find time to mentor and develop those who may be unaware of the vast resources USC provides. Joseph is looking forward to meeting all the new faces this year!
