Graduate Assistant

Hometown: Born in New York and raised in Northern Virginia 
Languages: English & Vietnamese 
Studying: Counseling and Development 

What inspires you about counseling?
It humbles me to help people; it’s satisfying to know that my work is purposeful and meaningful. 

What do you like best about your position in Learning Services? 
Being able to help students through their academic barriers to academic success.

What is one thing you want people to know about Learning Services?
I want students to know that your grades don’t have to be suffering to receive academic support, I see students of various backgrounds. Mason has a ton of great FREE resources that you would have to pay for outside of Mason. Learning Services is a great place to go if you are in need of new study strategies.

How would you describe your learning style?
My learning style is a multi-model approach: I am a visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learner.

What are your academic challenges?
When I have a full plate, my anxiety kicks in and it leads to me to procrastinate my difficult assignments.

How do you overcome those challenges?
I use my planner to help keep me organized and break down my assignments into more manageable tasks. This helps me complete big assignments little by little over time.

How would you use that experience to help students?
Not too long ago, I was taking 18 credits, had a part-time job, and held two organization positions. I had a lot on my plate and it took a lot of trial and error to develop strong study habits. I get it, being a college student is hard work, but even with a full plate, there are habits you can learn to help lessen the load. Time management and prioritization are very important for your academics and your future.

Hobbies & Interests
I enjoy going to the gym, weightlifting, attending local farmers markets, and listening to podcasts. I also love animals. When I was younger, I had eight rabbits and a turtle. I currently live in a townhouse with two dogs and a cat. 

Future Goals
My future goal is to graduate with my Master’s in Education in May 2019. I also want to secure a position as a School Counselor. Education is important to me; I’d like to continue my education by pursuing my Ed.D or PhD.
