Sarina YangSarina Yang
Major: Nursing Program
Bilingual: Mandarin

Hello, my name is Sarina Yang; I am pursuing nursing major in Mission College. When I was a new student, I received help from a welcome center ambassador representative. The help I received made class registration, applying for financial aid, buying books, and other administrative tasks much easier than I had anticipated. I eventually got accustomed to the academic process and administration to prepare myself for the semester; I thought it would be good to show my appreciation by giving back to the community. In my heart I wanted to help students with the same difficulties that I encountered as a new student; and therefore chose to seek the role of Ambassador at the Welcome Center to fulfill my career and educational ambitions.   As an ambassador I will make sure students will find all their academic administrative needs to facilitate success in their education.
