I completed my BA and MA at Lehigh in the history department. My thesis topics were the Battle for the Aleutians and the role of Chinese-American veterans in the Second World War with a focus on immigration and political activism. I received a minority intern scholarship from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. Afterwards, I went to grad school at Rutgers for library and information science and am now employed at Lehigh University as the acquisitions librarian. Finding books is a LOT like history and the research process. I was awarded conference scholarships on two separate occasions by Brodart and the Copyright Clearance Center.
