My name is Jaimie, and I’m a MA student in Art History.
I graduated just last spring (Class of 2018!) and I’ll be coming back to UCI in the fall to complete the 4+1 Art History program, where I’ll receive my Masters degree with just one extra year of study. I loved my time as an undergraduate, and I’m excited to experience anteater life as a graduate student too!
When I was an undergrad, I was lucky enough to be involved with a lot of organizations. I was a campus representative (or a tour guide), a peer academic advisor for the School of Humanities, and a member of the Humanities Honors Program, where I completed a senior thesis. I majored in Art History and I minored in English. I’m also a first generation Korean-American, and the first in the family to be getting their Master's degree.
Here’s some facts to break the ice and get to know me.
My favorite color is sparkles!
I’m a big, big fan of stationary (maybe I’ll write a post about that in the future!)
Skincare is my favorite form of self care.
I’m a big Disney nerd and I was an annual passholder during my senior year.
My favorite television show is Bojack Horseman. I’m watching it as I’m writing this!
I’m super excited to be writing for y’all this year, and I hope that anything I write can be of service to you, dear reader, even if just a little bit. I still remember the anxiety before I started my freshman year, and all the hazy summer days I spent researching what college was like, and all the restless nights I couldn’t go to sleep because I was thinking about what I would be like in college. It’s very cliché, and this is probably something you’ll hear a lot when you’re in school but college is really what you make of it. I’m happy with how my undergraduate years turned out, and I wish you the best of luck as you navigate these next couple of years!
Also I’m dropping my ig handle in case you wanna… y’know, follow me or something.
