Why did you choose Baylor's MSW Program?
  • I appreciate the small cohort sizes, the intentional integration of faith and practice, and I have always wanted to attend Baylor in some capacity. Baylor's preview day also further affirmed that I was choosing the right program.
What is a cause you are passionate about?
  • As a first generation Chinese American, I am passionate about mental health advocacy and education within immigrant communities. I also worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center and am passionate about oncology social work as well.
How does a Master of Social Work degree fit into your career plan?
  • I believe it will allow me to further contribute to agencies and causes that I am passionate about. Because my background is not in social work, I do not have a specific post-graduation life plan. Thus, I am interested in seeing where my passions will take me with my MSW.
Unique characteristic about yourself
  • I can speak Mandarin Chinese and I have lived in China for several years.
