Hello! My name is Stacey Thao and I'm one of the CRAs at CPaRC! I'm currently a senior majoring in social work and minoring in sociology. I will ideally be graduating in summer 2022 as I plan to do study abroad in Austria! Some of my hobbies include interacting with friends and family, sleeping, watching TV shows/dramas, eating out, and playing video games such as Valorant. I chose to become a social worker because I would love to help and assist individuals and communities with needs that aren't voiced because of their disparities and because their needs aren't being met by society and the institutions. With that, understanding a community or an individual's needs can establish a better comprehension on tackling inequality and the disparities in the world. After graduation, I plan to take a year off school, gain more experience in the social work field, and prepare to return to graduate school.
