Get to know Christy

I am passionate about...forming close bonds, giving back to the community, diversity and inclusion
I am interested in (affiliated student organizations/groups on campus)...Trailblazers, Green Team, USGA (Undergraduate Student Government Association), Chinese Society, Badminton Club, Honors College, Undergraduate Research
I chose UAB because...UAB gave me the instant feeling of home when I first stepped on campus. When I went on my campus tour, I could already imagine myself studying at the library, eating lunch at the Hill Student Center, and attending class in University Hall. There is truly no where else I could imagine myself and looking back now, choosing UAB is still one of the best decisions I have made!
Favorite thing to do in Birmingham?Outside of on-campus events hosted by different organizations, I love trying new restaurants and coffee shops around Birmingham and strolling around City Walk and Railroad Park!
Best thing you've ate in Birmingham?Saigon Noodle House! Literally the one restaurant that I consistently go back to. They have the best spring rolls and pho (in my opinion)!
