Currently, he is the Assistant Director of External Affairs for the Asian Pacific Coalition and serves as one of UCLA’s campus delegates for the West Coast Asian Pacific Islander Student Union. An out-of-state student from Boston, his interests lie in community engagement – particularly through social, economic, political, and educational issues – and bridging student activism with the work of community-based organizations.
