“I don’t know, I guess it’s not really just one moment that I’ve been happy, but I’ve gotten really close to my friends more this semester than last semester, so I guess making new friends and getting close to them.”

“Okay, so one of my most favorite memories at TAMS was second semester, right before finals week was when my friends and I all decided we wanted to study together for one of our finals. We decided to go to Union, but we made a little stop in front of the giant eagle statue at that giant grass patch right in front (of the Union). It was super sunny and warm and we just sat there and we didn’t get any work done, but the memory of feeling the sun rays and just having my friends with me and having these cool Starbucks drinks was just really memorable.”

I met my roommate, Aparna, through mutual friends. And it was like a struck of luck since we are basically the same person. In having the same values, raised the same way, and it’s nice being able to go to someone who understands you. She is actually my best friend, attached at the hip, I will fight for her, and I love her to death. I met my other friends through classes and i'm just really close with all of them. We have a weird dynamic thing too but it all works out. I can go to different people for different types of advice like practical, personal, and more.

Having the responsibility of helping to raise her alongside my mom has given me a unique outlook on life, and I try to set an example for her in everything I do.

The college application process was mostly logistics, and sorting things out--so being organized and keeping track of what you’ve done and what you have left to do. Except for the essays. The essays were so much art, its was crazy, it was just all about trying to be artistic and convey who you are in a creative sense.

After quitting, I had to venture out of my bubble and make new friends in school and cultivate new relationships. The experience taught me not to get to comfortable in one position, because there is so much more to experience in life

As an ambassador for the Japan-America society of Dallas/Forth Worth this summer, it was nice to go to a country that I’ve never been to before and learn about their culture, so I really like experiences like that. We got to spend a week in Japan, and we stayed with host families, so we really had the opportunity to be enveloped in the culture. That was just an amazing experience. We also went to a sushi belt place!

We’ve been working on this 1955 Van der Graff particle accelerator. We have like 4 or 5 operational accelerators under the Physics building basement. It’s kinda cool. So I’ve been working on one of those with Dr.Weathers for a year and then I’m with Dr.Roberts in the Physics Department also. He’s got a really neat astronomy project that he just wants someone to go back through the math with him on to check for mistakes and stuff. So that’s like, less involved.

Professor Acree, for example; he definitely cares about our learning, especially TAMS students. He makes sure that we don’t have any questions that needed to be answered after class ends. And my peers here definitely push me to be my best as well, for me specifically in a social way. I don’t want people to feel like that they should be reserved just because they don’t know people they should be open about anything because we are one big family.”

TAMS as a whole has been a great struggle. From the beginning, people in the past have

underestimated me. I was told “someone like you doesn’t fit in a place like TAMS”, “It’s going to

ruin your soul”, “You’re not going to make great grades” and, “That’s the Asian school and

you’re blonde, what do you think you’re doing?”. I was told these things when coming into

TAMS. So being here, I want to show people that I’m a person who can put their mind to

anything and make a difference.
