My name is Nancy and I will be one of the many mentors of the First-Year Programs at UH Manoa. I’m very excited to meet all of you!
I am happy to say that I was born and raised here in the beautiful state of Hawaii. Currently, I am a senior and I have two majors: Psychology and German. In my spare time, I enjoy martial arts, reading and language learning. Currently I am working on my fifth language, German. After graduation, I would like to combine my knowledge of psychology with linguistics and pursue a PhD in Psycholinguistics. Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a world where most people could speak at least 3 languages?!
Manoa has provided a great deal of support for me as well as life-changing opportunities. I’ve just returned from a study abroad program in Berlin, Germany and it was absolutely amazing! If there is any advice I could give you it is this: enjoy what you do. College can be very stressful but it can also be one of the happiest times of your life as long as you make the most of it. So make friends and make memories. If you are ever worried about something (which I’m sure you will and it is completely normal) feel free to seek me out! I will be more than happy to help you as best as I can. My goal as your mentor is to not only help you become successful here at UH Manoa, but also to help you enjoy your time in college as I have!
Looking forward to seeing you all!
