Ask me about...

  • Living in another country for the first time

  • Living on campus for a long period of time (+ moving to another college house in the middle of the semester)

  • Student life at Penn

  • Volunteer work/community services at Penn

  • Anything you’d like to know during or before you arrive at Penn!

My Experience at Penn:

Studying at Penn allows me to take classes that are not available in my home institution, such as neuroscience, positive psychology, and criminology. Professors at Penn are so friendly and nice, they are always willing to address all your concerns on the course materials and career planning! These bits and pieces have furthered my insights into psychopathology, as well as my pursuit of further studies and/or mental health-related careers abroad. Besides, I’m glad that UPenn supports a wide variety of student clubs and societies, enabling me to broaden my social circles, make connections with both local and international students, and foster cultural exchange!

Other Highlights:

  • Meeting friends from all over the world

  • Traveling to New York, Boston, Washington DC, and Vancouver

  • Becoming a proud piano mentor at the Penn Music Mentoring Program

  • Attending concerts presented by the Philadelphia Orchestra with other exchange students
