Cievia Xiong MPAc 23

I believe the success of all individuals rests on the power of mentorship and their work ethic. I chose UC Davis because I knew the program would support me with empathy and care to reach my goals and aspirations. The MPAc program is equipped with renowned professors and an academically rigorous curriculum that challenges me. As a first-generation graduate student, I hope to inspire more students to be resilient and overcome challenges to obtain their goals.
