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
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."
