What is your favorite sport?
Bruin Football!!

What is your claim to fame?
I worked and went to school with Randall Park from Fresh Off the Boat. Also, I assisted US Olympian Michelle Kwon in the Housing Office the summer before she attended UCLA. They are both very nice people, as are all UCLA Bruins of course! I’d like to think I taught them everything
they know, but that would not be true.

What’s your strangest quirk?
I have a strange need to try every reputable Ramen/Noodle food joint.
