    Crazy Rich Asians Reactions

    Crazy Rich Asians was written by Kevin Kwan back in 2016 which I heard about through one of my favorite youtubers, Weylie, and at the time I was really amazed with the title itself. I had never thought to search up Asian young adult books as a teenager who was reading nothing, but young adult books.

    First Day of My Last Day of School

    It’s so crazy to think I started my last first day of school for my undergraduate degree this past Monday. I can’t believe I’m 3 months away from earning my Bachelor’s degree. I can’t believe I’m so close to earning my second degree. My main goal for my last semester is to do my very best and earn the highest GPA I can. My mom didn’t finish school and although my father did I never had his support growing up. My stepfather has always been tough on me so earning my degree at the end of the year will be the most accomplishing thing in my life to date that…

    Tips on utilizing LinkedIn

    Background Linkedin is a website that is structured similar to Facebook, but with the purpose of connecting users with employers and vice versa. I’ve had a Linkedin account since my first year of college.

Here are my tips for utilizing Linkedin: Tailor your resume for each job you’re applying too, and use different formats for…
