Why I am an AHA Advocate: 

I am an AHA Advocate because I firmly believe that people are born equal and should have equal access to resources that would strongly support the life we want to achieve, and this is the core value of social justice to the development of individuals as well as the society we live. However, the social and systematic inequity has created the top-down power differentials to maintain the status quo that simultaneously grants some groups unearned privileges and denies access to other groups. As an AHA advocate, I hope to promote social justice and multiculturalism through teaching to support the growth of future generations of Counseling Psychology, conducting research that would have implications to social justice advocacy from an international lens, and engaging in day-to-day activism as a multicultural scientist-practitioner

Fun fact: 

I am an international student from Yinchuan, Ningxia province, China. It's a small place but with all my fun memory. Ningxia is a province where a lot of Hui (Muslim) minorities live. Yinchuan is the capital city of the province. Ningxia is famous for its Goji berries and lambs as well as the amazing scenery where you'll see the Yellow River flows across desert area.
