I am currently a 4th year Ph.D. student in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with an interest in identity development in adolescence and emerging adulthood. I am broadly interested in identity development and its impact on adolescent health and well-being. Feel free to visit my personal website to know more about my work.
I am an Asian American who was born in Vietnam. I moved to the United States when I was 12. Not only that I am a first-generation college student, but I am also the first person in my family pursuing a Ph.D. In 2017, I was one of the Who's Who in the Asian American Communities - Leaders and Legend Honorees. You can read more about my personal journey and the award here. Today, as an Asian American doctoral student, I want to use my skills and expertise to help by conducting a study on the impact of racial discrimination among Asian Americans.
