    Chi Nguyen

    Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

    I am passionate about learning, working with people, and diversity and inclusion.
    Involvement & Interests

    International Student Association (ISA), Residential Housing Association (RHA), Human Resources Association (HRA), Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS)

    In my free time, I love listening to podcasts, going for walk on the Greenbelt, and watching Grey’s Anatomy!

    My Advice

    Studying abroad is a big decision, but a unique and invaluable experience. Follow @boisestateinternational to learn what college life looks like at Boise State. Give yourself time to explore foundation courses to find what you are interested in. There are also Advising and Academic Success Center and advisors of your departments who can help you! If you feel exhausted or clueless, spend some time practicing self-care and reflecting on your values and what keeps you moving forward!

  • Tobi Popoola

    Ibadan, Nigeria.

    I would like to be a Research Scientist, grow my own company and possibly save humanity.
    Involvement & Interests

    National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Boise State Chapter President, Graduate Research Assistant. I love music and soccer, you would catch me doing any of the two during my spare time. One fun thing to know about me is that I am pretty outgoing, I could literally be your best friend in a minute.

    My Advice

    Choose a program that you would be happy doing: there is nothing better than having fun while working. The current COVID situation has been pretty daunting but we should all know that we are in this together and we can only win by being positive.
