Claudia YuHello, nice to meet you! My name is Claudia and I'm a senior majoring in Finance. I was born and raised in NYC, but I am obsessed with traveling whenever I can. After studying abroad in Tokyo last year, I now work as a peer adviser in the Global Penn State office. So if you're ever thinking about going abroad (which you totally should), you know who to look for! And yes, I'm 100% a city girl at heart -- but that doesn't mean I don't love it here at Penn State.

On campus, I've also been involved in the Pan-Asian business org Ascend, The Daily Collegian, and Asian Undergraduate Student Association (AUSA). In my free time, you can catch me discovering new places to eat downtown (I'm a major foodie), taking pictures of everything I eat, studying at the library (I take classes pretty seriously!), shopping, and having casual photo-shoots with friends. Aesthetics are very important to me!

When I was a mentee in AASIA my freshman year, I found it extremely helpful to be surrounded by such a positive and supportive community right off the bat. So if you're nervous about college, I can assure that you're in the right place! It's true that college can (and will) get difficult at times, but that just means more opportunities to grow and develop yourself as a person, and I'm more than excited to be there for you as we go on this magical journey together! Here's to a great year!
