On Wednesday April 12, Dr. Bruce Agins (HC’75) and 4 of his current interns (all recent Haverford alums) came to Haverford to present on some of their work at the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute based in New York City. I was a Bi-Co extern at the AIDS Institute two years ago, so of course I attended the panel. I am also interested in public health and policy and would love to work at the AIDS Institute if granted the opportunity. Continue reading
I was invited to an onsite job interview this Friday in New York City for a Research Assistant job. As you all know by now, I am pretty desperate for a postgraduate job related to my career track. After my 9-10am Anatomy & Physiology class, I boarded the 10:23am SEPTA to 30th and took an Amtrak (with a free upgrade to business class voucher, yay!) to New York City. Continue reading
I didn’t go anywhere tropical or far enough to board an airplane this Spring Break, but that did not stop me from having a pretty packed week with friends and family. Here’s the recap… Continue reading
The main reason for going to New York City this past weekend was for my extended maternal family’s Chinese New Year get together (which I blogged about here). Coincidentally, Saturday February 4th was also my birthday. As I age deeper into my 20s (well, I’m still pretty young), I realize the realities of adulthood and postgraduate life are looming closer than ever. But, there’s always a way to find time to celebrate and live in the moment. Continue reading
SLAC Interviews continued on Monday, January 9th in New York City at Baruch College’s Conference Center. I had two interviews scheduled and planned on picking up more interviews, but the other employers did not interest me or I was not selected as an alternate. Attending an event like this the second time around with my D.C. experience still fresh in my head made me less nervous and ready to put myself out there. Continue reading
The Parsons Dance Company, a New York City based modern dance company, is in Philadelphia this weekend performing new and familiar works. As part of their visit, they also led an open masterclass for the community hosted by NextMove Dance at Drexel University’s Ellen Forman Studio. Most who attended were students from Drexel, but some were adults from the city, a student from Swarthmore, and two from Bryn Mawr — my friend Joy Chan ’17 and me.
On October 25, the Bryn Mawr College Asian Students Association invited the president of CAAAV: Organizing Communities Cathy Dang to speak on the current state of race relations and CAAAV’s record of helping Asian Americans in the New York City community. CAAAV is one of the most established Asian American activism organizations in the New York area, and their dedication to lobbying for housing rights, workers unions, and police reform can be traced back to the early 1980s.
Since starting my break with the Japanese Breakfast concert, I’ve been on blog hiatus enjoying time with friends and family in Philly, Ridgewood, NYC, and Toronto. Looking back at what I’ve done and where I’ve been, it seems like I gravitate toward visiting a lot of arts, culture, and food-centered places. Here are some highlights from my fall break: Continue reading
Here’s how I spent my Spring Break:
