As I begin to reflect on my first conference experience (because what would anything be without reflection) I can solidly say that I have come away with a vigor not known before this conference but I'm sure was always there. To have met and connected with some of the most brilliant minds in the field and to be in community with the future of my field struck a chord that I was not prepared for. I realized even more this field, higher education student affairs is my calling, ACPA is my home. I am ready to make waves and forge my path in this field and really impact my campus. So happy to have experienced it with my University of Iowa community and the bigger community of ACPA that I met this weekend. -
I am a graduate student and young professional with potential and I beginning to believe and live in that truth. -
So ready for ACPA2018 in Houston.

Coffee meet up with another transracially adopted Korean American. She's a PhD student in the Midwest, and she read a chapter Marc and I wrote a couple of years ago where we talk about ourselves a little more personally and how identity influences research. And she happened to meet Marc yesterday and ask for a connection to me, so his doc student connected her with me at API trivia last night, and now we're going to have coffee and talk about transracial adoption and identity...should be interesting. It's a small world. 😁#koreanadoptees#acpa2017
