What do you do regularly to relieve stress?

To release daily stress, I enjoy listening to music,img_3252 jogging at the OPERS, watching good movies (the ones that really make me focus), read some interesting books, and also talking to friends on the phone.

Tell us about something you’re passionate about outside of school (e.g., clubs, hobbies, interests, volunteering, activities, etc.)

As a member of JSA, i am specifically interested in Japanese language and culture learning. I am also passionate in drawing, playing with puppies, swimming, reading, playing volleyball, watching movies and animations

If you could share one thing that you’d like your peers to know about CAPS, what would it be?

Instead of a place ONLY for counseling when you don’t feel right, the CAPS is also a really refreshing and calming place for everyone to express their real feelings at anytime possible, and also to maintain a healthy lifestyle here on campus!
