St. John's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Class of 2021
Brian lives by the Maya Angelou quote, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
“As the first generation of my family to move to the US, I had to learn many things on my own and did not have much help as I navigated my new surroundings,” he explained. “As I learned more over the years, I started doing better.”
Brian lives in Rockland County, NY, and graduates in May with a Bachelor of Arts degree from St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. A Psychology major with a minor in Sport Management, he plans to enroll in graduate school and become a sport psychologist. This career allows him to help athletes globally—which is his lifelong goal.
Attending St. John’s was an easy decision for him because it is close to his home and Manhattan, and offers many varied opportunities. Over the last three years, he has expanded his network, traveled the world, and developed many new skills.
He is a Ronald E. McNair Scholar, and also was a 2019–20 Global Ambassador, Red House fashion show participant, and a fellow in the Collaborative Health Integration Research Program. As a McNair Scholar, he had the opportunity to attend a conference in Dallas, TX.
This past summer he did a research project focusing on whether caseload is a predictor of burnout overtime in physicians, nurses, and physician assistants. In his free time, he enjoys being with his friends, playing basketball, and traveling.
