San Francisco, CA
Michael Chan is a third-year Business Economics major hoping to declare an Accounting or Computer Science minor. Born and raised in San Francisco, he committed to UCSD in search of a new environment and unique experiences in Southern California. Michael values trying new things and stepping outside of his comfort zone. Furthermore, he strongly believes in self-improvement and strives to become closer to the best version of himself every day.
Professionally, Michael currently plans on starting a career in either audit or advisory. Although not set in stone, his internship experience at KPMG gave him new exciting insight into what a journey may look like in public accounting. Additionally, Michael has always been interested in tech and software engineering. One of his biggest regrets is not attempting to pursue this path. Consequently, he intends to enroll in computer science courses to explore this curiosity and potential career path.
In his free time, Michael enjoys discovering new restaurants, exploring thrift stores, playing basketball, and working out. His favorite genre of music is EDM, where he frequently attends concerts and performances. One of Michael’s passions is League of Legends, where he is one of the coaches for the UCSD Varsity League of Legends Esports Team. His passion for League of Legends stemmed from many hours of competing at the highest level during the pandemic, frequently against professional players. Since joining Alpha Kappa Psi, Michael is grateful for the experiences he has shared with his brothers and is looking forward to creating new memories this year.
