We are excited to launch the second year of our College Ambassador Program at three local universities: CSU San Marcos, UC San Diego, and San Diego State. The College Ambassador Program is designed to empower upper class students to take on leadership roles as mentors and help provide incoming first-year students a successful transition to college.
Our College Ambassadors are trained in mentorship, practical leadership, and community building skills so that they are prepared to help first-generation students strengthen their self confidence, find their voice, and grow into pillars of support that future program graduates can aspire toward.
We are proud to introduce our SDSU College Ambassador!

Tell us about yourself.
I am a first-generation college student from City Heights! I was also a part of Reality Changers my senior year in high school (Class of 2018) My horoscope sign is a Libra. I am an incoming third year at SDSU, I double major in Sociology and Interdisciplinary Studies in Public Health, Sustainability, and Asian Studies. My minor is Cultural Proficiency. At SDSU, I am also a part of the Price Community Scholars for Cohort 4 serving as a Mentor and I am also a researcher for the Public Health Department for “Girls Invest”. I was born in Vietnam but was raised my whole life in San Diego, I love going to the beach to watch the sunset but I never go into the water. I love going out to eat at new places, and some of my favorite foods are seafood boils and poke bowls. I really like watching true crime documentaries as well as listening to motivational podcasts. I hope to create a safe and welcoming space with my Ambassador role that will make everyone feel comfortable.
What are you most looking forward to as an ambassador?
I am looking forward to meeting new people as well as making new networking connections with not only the students but also the staff members from Reality Changers as well staff from SDSU.
