My name is Lauren Higa (she/her), and 2019-2020 will be my second year in the concurrent Asian American Studies MA and Social Welfare/MSW program. This year, I will be starting my MSW program as an intern at the UCLA Center for Child Anxiety Resilience Education and Support. I will also be working on my MA thesis on Asian American Feminism. Outside of school, I like to root for the Dodgers, go home to the San Gabriel Valley to eat, and play with my dogs.
