Fatima TranHi ya there! My name is Fatima, and I am a senior majoring in Marketing and minoring in Information System Management. I hope to have a career in consulting market research after I graduate! Apart from AASIA, I am holding multiple leadership positions within alpha Kappa Delta Phi, I am also a part of Penn State Marketing Association where I am able to participate in hands-on market research for local business in State College, and Ascend where I am a current active member.

I was born in Jersey City, NJ and raised in East Hanover, NJ. I am the first in my family to be born in America and the first to attend college. My family came into America from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Unfortunately, I have only traveled to Vietnam once in my lifetime when I was twelve years old. This is because majority of my relatives live in America. However, I do plan to dive into my culture more and visit again when the right time arrives! With my family, I travel a lot to various countries and enjoy the opportunities of learning about another country.

In my free time, napping is number one on my list. I LOVE watching anime or Korean dramas/variety shows or anything that deals with cuteness like Pokémon (I can do Pokémon impressions) or babies. They make me happy. I do a little cosplaying while attending Anime conventions and hope to master Japanese and Korean one day so I can watch anime and Korean shows without subtitles. I also enjoy playing League of Legends when I need something to de-stress. Besides these activities, I love food as well, with a side of bubble tea or avocado smoothie!


Lastly, if you need someone to just hang out, talk about school, life, anime/Korean shows/music or anything random, I will always be here to lend an ear. I can’t wait to meet everyone and I look forward to a fulfilling year with you all!
