Research and Assessment Peer Coach
Hi everyone! My name is Emmy and I'm the Research and Assessment Financial Wellness Peer Coach for this 2022-2023 school year! I'm a third year, majoring in Economics and minoring in Environmental Systems and Society. My hometown is in the San Fernando Valley, 20 minutes north of UCLA without any traffic. In my free time, I enjoy longboarding, exploring new music, and reading books!
I joined the financial wellness program because I believe that no matter what anyone's background is, it is so important to be financially well. Growing up as a first gen student, I've seen first hand how crucial it is to be financially literate, since money affects everyone. Seeing how the UCLA community has supported me so much these past two years, I want to give back to fellow Bruins to provide support with one of my favorite things to talk about: navigating the world of personal finance.
