NOTE: As a trustee of a public college, I have been fortunate enough to meet amazing people. Over the next few weeks I will be paying attention to Irvine residents who studied well at Irvine Valley College.
A resident of Irwin and a student at Irvine Valley College (IVC). Anna Nam is one of 15 members of Phi Theta Kappa selected as a 2022 Guistwhite Scholar Fellow. The award provides a scholarship of $ 5,000 for her further studies. (2,700 applications were received nationwide.)
In addition, Anna was included in the first academic team Phi Theta Kappa All-California. She was also selected as a Silver Fellow of the 2022 Coca-Cola Academic Team.
Now Anna is heading to the University of California at Berkeley, where she plans to pursue a major in economics and a second major in “Politics, Philosophy and Law.” Her long-term goal is to enroll in a law school in Colombia, where she hopes to become a lawyer in the field of entertainment, dealing with copyright issues.
While working at the IVC, Anna was involved in student self-government, serving as chair of the court court. She has also participated in Phi Theta Kappa as Vice President of Leadership. In addition, Anna has served as president of several clubs on campus – including the Business Leaders Society and the Pre-Law Society she founded. Anna also participates in the program with honors.
Anna considers IVC her success, saying: “As a non-traditional student who returned to IVC with little hope of her educational path, I found a home in IVC and a place to grow. I was average in the best student grew up; IVC was the first environment where my colleagues and teachers believed in me and listened to me. I received a lot of awards / prizes / scholarships and I really became part of my school community. I will always be grateful to IVC for giving me a second chance to earn a bachelor’s degree and gain a lifetime of valuable connections and relationships. ”
I wish Anna good luck when she moves to UC Berkeley. I am very happy to know that IVC has played such an integral role in shaping her educational future, and I have no doubt that she will continue to thrive in her next chapter.
