" The social structures I learn about inside my classrooms can also be found in my own life. I've taken notes about structural racism, but I've also experienced it as an Asian-American. I've written papers about class differences, but I've also experienced it coming from a low-income, immigrant family. Through my education and life experiences, I have found a deep desire to give a voice to the marginalized and oppressed. I seek to use my voice to speak up for those who have been stripped of theirs. More than anything, I seek to do ‚Äúfor the least of these‚Äù all that I can because I was once lost and broken, but now I am found and whole. "
