Hi! My name is Alison, and I’m a rising sophomore from Los Angeles, CA. I’m currently declared 4B (Design), but my interests span a wide range of fields. Outside of academics, I’m involved with New House Exec, Student Alumni Association, Association of Taiwanese Students, and more, but when I’m not studying or working, I like to read, watch anime, and listen to music.

Do you collect anything? My favorite souvenir to pick up while traveling is a drinking glass from the country. I love seeing which glass guests choose for themselves when they come over for dinner. My favorite glass in the collection is a clay wine glass with an octopus design that I brought back from Cyprus. You can practically feel the Mediterranean sea breeze when drinking from it!

What advice do you have for students attending a career fair?
I would advise students to bring their resumes to the career fair and prepare some questions to ask employers from companies they are interested in applying to.
