Being a SA&FS peer adviser is such a great experiential learning opportunity for me to assimilate the 7 learning objectives. It means a lot to me, especially as an international student. Sometimes my English does not catch up with my passion/ideas, so those emails I sent to you had errors. I feel warm to read emails that people have replied to me, telling me how to fix the errors. Thank you all for your support and indulgence. I have learned so much from you all.
I am finishing my SA&FS study feeling empowered and passionate to improve the agri-food system. Being a SA&FS peer adviser is not solely to hold a student position, but one way for me to give back to the SA&FS major. One year ago I saw the need to build a neutral space that withholds assumptions for students to learn and grow through sharing opinions with each other. It was so nice to see many of your faces throughout the year. If any of you feel that I look more like a SA&FS friend than a peer-adviser; this would be the highest reward to me.
Let us applaud ourselves for all our hard schoolwork through the year. Let us wish all the graduating seniors the best. SA&FS is a rapidly growing major and yes, let us keep the hard work and change the real world.
I will stay in UC Davis to finish my undergraduate study for the coming Fall. I would not be a peer adviser anymore, but if any of you need my help, you know my email address.
What a great year it has been! I am so happy that I got to be a part of the SA&FS advising team and work with so many brilliant minds. My sentiments could not be better spoken as it can be sung in this song, check it out! This summer will a busy one as the advising team prepares for the upcoming year. There are many fun activities to look forward to (including SA&FS t-shirts! Submit your designs by June 30th) and we can’t wait to share them with you.
