Tell us about yourself!

Hi! I’m originally from Malaysia and came to the U.S. in 2012 to pursue my B.S. at Kutztown. My background is in psychology, although I also picked up minors in political science and literature. I am happiest when I’m eating (as illustrated in my photo) and being a hermit.

Why did you choose Lehigh?

I chose Lehigh because I loved the smaller size of the department and the social justice focus–and also because the department offered a great financial package (not gonna lie). I had also heard good things about the program from Colleen Clemens, a professor of mine at Kutztown who got her PhD here.

What is your favorite book outside your field of study?

Not sure if this is my favorite book ever “outside my field” (which I’m not really sure what that is), but I read Who Rules the World by Noam Chomsky this summer and really loved it.

What are you most looking forward to this year?

Growing intellectually and forming meaningful connections with people in the Lehigh community!
