Bio

Hello! My name is Portia Luong, and I use she/her pronouns. I am originally from the Bay Area and recently graduated from the University of California, Davis in 2023 with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Education. During my time at Davis, I gained experience in crisis counseling, tutoring, academic advising, and community outreach.

Previously, I worked as a peer advisor at Yellow Cluster, and I am excited to continue working here as a full-time academic advisor. I hope to apply for my master's in higher education and student affairs within the following year and become an academic advisor who provides compassionate and empathetic support to students during critical points in their academic and personal lives. I hope to learn more about every student and help them have a positive experience at UC Davis!

Fun Facts: I love watching K-dramas and Studio Ghibli films, and listening to K-pop, alternative R&B, and indie rock. In my downtime, I like oil painting, taking care of my plant babies, and thrifting. I have a strong passion for fashion and art, so if you see me wearing funky colors around campus, stop and say hi!
