About Jeanie

As a first-generation, Asian-American college graduate, it has not always been an easy path. My parents immigrated to America to seek a better life for my siblings and I. Most Vietnamese people who relocate to the United States work low-income jobs because they have no degree, English language, or previous school experience to obtain an actual career.

I learned the importance of education and hope to not follow the poverty cycle that most immigrants go through. In high school, I was a part of the TRIO Western Oregon Upward Bound for three years.

I had advisors and mentors who guided me towards the right direction-- helping me with applications, financial aid, and scholarships. I am fortunate enough to obtain a full scholarship to fund my undergraduate degree and study abroad programs at Portland State in Oregon.

During my time, I was involved with two peer mentor programs for incoming freshmen and study abroad students. In addition, in my Americorps program, I taught Cooking and Emergency Preparedness to at-risk youth. With my extensive experience, I would love to share my knowledge and skills to get you ready and prepare for college.
