Kyle is a third-year transfer from Sixth College studying Public Health concentrating in Health Management and Policy. A Bay Area native, he is excited for this new change of pace coming into San Diego. Kyle had the privilege to grow up with a family that taught him the values of empathy, kindness, and giving back to his community. Striving to make his family proud, Kyle makes his best efforts to leave a positive impact on others and living life to its fullest, doing what excites.
Professionally, healthcare has always been Kyle's passion. This summer he will be interning at Hologic as a health integration and automative marketing intern in order to further develop his understanding of the healthcare sector. Kyle knows that healthcare is directly tied into the business world and is something that is constantly being changed and innovated with different policies and new technology everyday, but at the same time is something that still isn't accessible nor affordable to many different populations. Knowing this he hopes to utilize his knowledge in the future through healthcare reform and consulting in order to make a positive change in our current healthcare system.
In his free time, Kyle enjoys running and hiking, often looking for new trails to run and places to explore. This passion stems from a lifetime of playing sports; soccer is his main sport, but he also played golf and basketball. He loves to cook new and different cuisines, with his specialty being Korean comfort food. You can often find him wearing AirPods listening to a wide variety of music ranging from kpop to EDM or looking at the latest sneaker drops. He also loves reading manga and watching anime, his favorite being Fullmetal. Recently Kyle has also been trying to learn how to play the guitar!
Although Kyle's time at San Diego has been short, he already feels right at home with his brothers in the Nu Xi chapter and can't wait to make even more memories with his newfound family.
