Year in school: SENIOOOOORRR
Major: Global Studies, Political Science

Who are you? What can you tell us about yourself?
The name is Katreena…but, I’m actually Alyssa.

I am a senior majoring in Global Studies and Political Science.

I love traveling and most of all immersing myself in other cultures. I have an odd obsession with elephants. You’ll be my best friend if you sit down with me to watch any live music 🙂

Why did you join PSA and what made you stay?

To find myself again. I was ignorant and turned the other cheek with my culture. So fully ignorant with the idea of wanting to be “American”.

Why did you become an officer and what plans do you have in store for PSA next year?

I joined because PSA is family. I was able to find myself again. I want to be able to contribute to the AAPI community as much as I can.

What advice do you have for others?


Study abroad folks.

I loved every minute of it. I studied abroad each year of my undergrad and it was absolutely the most remarkable and eye-opening experience ever.
