Like many of you out there reading this blog, I am also learning about Holy Cross but as a staff member instead of as a prospective applicant. I came on board to the Holy Cross admissions team a little over a month ago and have loved my time here so far. Prior to HC, I worked for two years in the admissions office at Connecticut College and before that, I was studying hard as a an undergraduate at Washington and Lee. Though I’ve spent the majority of my life here in the states, growing up in Richmond, VA, I was originally born in Cambodia and am half Cambodian and half Vietnamese.
Outside of admissions, much of my time these days is spent preparing for a baby that I’m expecting in early January. So things like reading up on taking care of a baby, shopping for baby, etc…that’s what I spend much of my time out of the office doing these days. However, I did, still do, and plan to have a life outside of my baby as well and in my free time, I enjoy listening to music. I have genres that range from jazz to R&B to hip hop on my Ipod but on a daily basis tend to steer towards soul and jazz. Aside from listening to music, I also sing on occasion and perform when I can in various functions at the Pomfret School, a boarding school in northeastern CT where I live and my husband works. I also perform frequently in the comfort of my own home. Outside of that, I also enjoy spending time with my husband, watching movies and TV shows (my favorites are the Cosby Show, Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy, and How Do I Look), shopping, reading, attending cultural events among a variety of things.
So that’s me in a jiffy. I look forward to meeting many of you on my travels, in my office, or via email and telephone calls. I wish you all the best of luck as you wrap up your high school experience and prepare for the next chapter of your lives.
