Hello! My name is Jesse and I am a first year intended computer science/molecular cell biology major. I enjoy playing tennis, learning, biking, hiking, and eating. I learned about Hepatitis B from the last two years in high school in China. I became increasingly curious about the disease that was extremely prevalent throughout the country I lived in and also originated from. After coming to Cal, I joined the Hepatitis B Project because I want to learn more about Hepatitis B as well as play an active role in helping to prevent it. Furthermore, by being a part of this organization, I aspire to grow as a person as well as contribute to the community that played a fundamental part in giving us all the opportunities we have as Asians in America.
After being in the emergency room of a hospital and having seen first hand the impact a doctor can have on someone’s life, I realized that I wanted to become a doctor. In those situations, people have to be willing to trust others with their lives. In the Hepatitis B Project, people trust us to take care of them and keep them safe. I hope to begin this effort at the Hep B Project and to continue doing so throughout my life.
