Why did you want to work at the HSRC?
I wanted to work at the HSRC because I wanted to get more involved with the community. As an international student, I felt very limited in my connections with the OSU and the Corvallis community. Furthermore working here allows me to reach out to more people about the resources that the HSRC has and spread awareness. I think it can be really tricky to navigate life as a full time students and through the HSRC I get to provide support and guidance.
What will we be working on this year?
I will be working on organizing Food Pantries throughout the year. My goal is to make the Food Pantry a a very welcome place with enough resources to increasing number of patrons.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free-time I like to watch YouTube videos, go on walks, read and relax.
What’s your favorite yummy and cheap meal to make?
My go to cheap meal is Kimchi Ramen, it’s not very healthy but it is so good and it’s cheap!
Do you have tips for students on how to save money?
I think from my experience I have learned to meal prep, you will not realize how fast the money goes when you are eating meals out everyday! It makes a huge difference to your bank to not eat out everyday!
What is your favorite thing to do in Corvallis?
I really enjoy going to different parks with my cat and friends and taking evening walks.
