Welcome everyone! My name is Janet Ngo, I am a 4th year double major Public Health Policy and Political Science, pronouns she/her/hers. I am so grateful and excited to be running for the UCI 2021 Homecoming crown and I hope to learn from this amazing experience.
Although college may just be a small fragment of our lives, it had the opportunity to change my life for the better and I have learned so much about myself and others. While entering college, I moved my life halfway across the state from San Jose, CA to Irvine, CA; to venture into the unknown and discover more about myself. Throughout my time at UCI, I jumped throughout different organizations and aligned myself with a variety of people, but I was only able to blossom once I embraced my true core and discovered self-expression. I learned how to harness inner peace and compassion for others throughout these 4 years. I am so proud of the woman I have become and I am constantly working towards self-improvement. During this time, I discovered my true passion for public health and will dedicate my life work towards community building in segregated communities.
Throughout my time in UCI, I was involved in:
-Anh Lanh Free Clinic Project Intern
-ASUCI IVP Food Security Commission Intern
-ASUCI EVP Housing Security Commission Intern
-VP Intellectual Development Alpha Chi Omega Panhellenic Sorority
-Division of Continuing Education (DCE) Activities Lead
-Albertson’s UC Irvine Campus Ambassador
-TRUTH Tobacco Awareness UC Irvine College Leader
-UCI School of Public Health
-UCI School of Social Sciences
I would like to personally thank UC Irvine for providing me so many new opportunities and learning experiences. My journey would not have come true without the support and acceptance from the communities I joined and the friends I have made. You all have helped shape me into the empathetic, confident young woman I am today. I truly thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.
Love, Janet Ngo
