How has GPS helped me?
GPS has helped me feel welcomed and it has helped me be less afraid of college because I know I have a success team that will always have my back whenever I have a question they are always open to answering them. Whenever I'm on campus and I have nowhere to go, I always go to the CSIE lounge to have a quiet place to do work or just chill while I wait for my classes to start and I feel very safe whenever I'm there.

What keeps me motivated and positive?
Thinking about what I want my future to look like keeps me motivated, and during life hardships, I like saying to myself that it will not always remain like this.

Advice for my fellow scholars:
Prioritize your mental health. Sometimes it's okay to stop climbing and build a tent to chill for a while.

Plans after graduation:
My plan after graduating is to have a stable job at a big company like Google or Microsoft so that I'm able to provide back for my family and get a place of my own with pets. I would also love to travel with my family to different countries.
