Get to Know Marcus

How do you identify yourself?

Asian-American, Ally.

Being someone that is underrepresented in pretty much any room I walk into, I have become very sensitive to DEI matters and want to help others with the same issues. I was an undergrad, grad student and now a staff member so I believe that my experience with the University could be an asset to others. Over the years I have taken several trainings not just for professional development but also to be able to assist students, which is something that I enjoy doing.

List three things that people would be most surprised to learn about you.

  1. Android & Wear OS user.
  2. Morning person.
  3. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

Whom do you most admire and why?

No one person in particular but I often admire fellow minorities that achieve great things and break down stereotypes and societal barriers.
