Undergrad: University of Southern California, Class of 2015
About: I was born in China and moved to the US when I was eight. After USC, I worked for Amazon for a year and then Homeland Security for two years. I spend all my free time on volleyball. If I'm not playing, I'm coaching. If I'm not coaching, I'm watching. When it comes to food, I am very conservative; so you will see me eating the same few items in the same restaurants. However, I love trying out new exercise classes and recently became addicted to boxing. Career-wise, I am interested in the tech industry and emerging markets. Over my 1L summer, I worked in the Immigration Court in Los Angeles with the Department of Justice. Other than APALSA, I am a Staff Editor of the Georgetown Tech Law Review and a Global Law Scholar.

About: I was born in Shanghai, China but grew up in Florida. After undergrad, I moved to New York and traveled around the US as a digital strategy consultant for three years. I am a major foodie and love to explore new restaurants and cuisines. My other hobbies include playing tennis, cooking, and watching shows and movies that feature strong female leads. Academically, I am interested in national security and foreign policy. After law school, I hope to pursue a career in litigation. Outside of APALSA, I am a Legal Research & Writing Law Fellow, a Staff Editor on the Georgetown Law Journal, and a Student Ambassador for the Admissions Office.

About: I worked in the fashion industry before I came to law school. To me, the Socratic way of teaching is fancier than the fashion shows! Apart from APALSA, I am a Staff Editor on the Georgetown Journal of International Law.

About: I'm a California girl at heart who misses sunshine and the ocean breeze, especially when it's snowing in the wintry East Coast. My academic and professional interests center on health law and policy both domestically and internationally. My hobbies include reading novels while pretending to read law casebooks and aspiring to be a better home cook than I actually am. Apart from APALSA, I am the President of the Health Law Society and the Director of Internal Competitions in the Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) Division of Barristers' Council.
