Hi everyone! My name is Olivia Hom and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I’m a double major in Psychological Science and Criminology, Law & Society.
I grew up in the Bay Area, lived on the East Coast for a year, and then moved to Santa Cruz for community college. I transferred to UCI in Fall 2019 and I’m excited to share how I’ve become involved at UCI ever since!
When I first got to UCI, I joined Phi Alpha Delta, the pre-law fraternity. Then, I became the Vice Chair of the Social Ecology Dean’s Ambassador Council. Recently, I started the Women in Law Association at UCI and am currently the president. I’m a transfer peer mentor (which I love because I’m a big advocate for transfer student success!). Academically, I’m a research assistant for a lab that interviews justice-involved youth and I was recently accepted into Psi Chi, the psychology honors society.
Lastly, some of my interests include painting, yoga, hiking, watching movies (anything A24!), board games, baking, and finding the best local coffee spots (always open to suggestions)!
I’m so excited for this opportunity to run for the Homecoming crown and represent UCI from a nontraditional student perspective!
