Kelly majors in Psychology at San Francisco State University and will graduate with a bachelor's degree in the Spring of 2018. Aside from taking Psychology courses, she has also delved into such areas of study as Asian American Studies, Race and Resistance Studies, and Women and Gender Studies. She is interested in social justice and raising awareness of people who continue to be marginalized and who's voices remain unheard. As the daughter of an immigrant mother, Kelly is passionate about working with refugees and other immigrants who are seeking a better life outside their country of origin. Art, in her opinion as an amateur artist herself, allows for freedom of expression and helps people feel like their voices are worthy of being heard. She loves reading as she believes that it can foster greater empathy and compassion for your fellow human being.
