Mervyn Tsui: Top Transfer Student

Mervyn Tsui is majoring in economics and math and is transferring to the University of Southern California in the fall 2009.

Mervyn Tsui was born in London and grew up in Hong Kong and mainland China. He came to Green River Community College in the fall of 2007. His major is Economics and Mathematics and he will be transferring to the University of Southern California (USC) in the Fall of 2009.

"USC was my first choice college," said Mervyn. "My father is an alumni there. He is very happy that I am attending."

"I chose economics as a major because my grandfather was an engineer and my father is a business man. Also, this is a subject that I am weak in and I want to improve myself in this area. When I graduate I want to be able to help fix the inequalities between the rich and poor in all countries."

Mervyn really enjoyed his time at Green River. He got involved in many areas on campus. He served as a finance senator for ASGRCC (student government), he worked for TRIO as a math tutor, he volunteered in the Math Learning Center, and he was president of the chess club.

"ASGRCC was most memorable for me. In the beginning I had a hard time presenting my ideas clearly. ASGRCC helped me a lot with that. It gave me the opportunity to learn about the American culture, it helped me with critical thinking, and it made feel like I was really contributing to the student body."
