My first goal is to graduate Mission with My Associate's degree in Psychology and hope to earn my degree in massage therapy at De Anza College, which resides in Cupertino. In five years, I hope to achieve my upcoming goal, which includes getting my bachelor's degree in Psychology as well as Massage Therapy.

My natural instinct is to help people whenever they ask, which is why I chose Psychology and additionally I wanted to learn the different aspects of the world and furthermore brought me to Sociology. I think helping people is a wonderful thing to do; something great always comes out of taking the initiative of putting others before you.


Sarina YangSarina Yang
Major: Nursing Program
Bilingual: Mandarin

Hello, my name is Sarina Yang; I am pursuing nursing major in Mission College. When I was a new student, I received help from a welcome center ambassador representative. The help I received made class registration, applying for financial aid, buying books, and other administrative tasks much easier than I had anticipated. I eventually got accustomed to the academic process and administration to prepare myself for the semester; I thought it would be good to show my appreciation by giving back to the community. In my heart I wanted to help students with the same difficulties that I encountered as a new student; and therefore chose to seek the role of Ambassador at the Welcome Center to fulfill my career and educational ambitions.   As an ambassador I will make sure students will find all their academic administrative needs to facilitate success in their education.
