Student Testimonials

Christina Geisse

The Asian Studies Program was incredible because most professors were undertaking their own research, passionate about their subject of study, and enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge with students. It felt fresh and profound at the same time. Inspiring!

I was able to delve deep and focus on the areas of Asian Studies that truly interested me, and therefore gained a much more thorough and developed understanding of my fields of interest, which are applicable to my current career path. Also, the professors are extremely helpful and want their students to succeed. They were very supportive both while I was at UH and after I graduated.

Monica Orillo moderated ambassador talk

Last week, the East-West Center hosted a student town hall with Ambassador to Japan Rahm Emanuel and Ambassador to South Korea Philip Goldberg. The town hall focused on their respective roles in efforts to strengthen trilateral relations among the United States, Japan and South Korea. MAAS student Monica Orillo moderated the Question and Answer part of the program.

Monica is a Pickering Fellow, and recently received her post-graduation Foreign Service placement. Moderating this event gave her the exciting opportunity to connect her academic work to her professional career, and gain important experience as she prepares for her upcoming position as a Public Diplomacy Officer.
