Hello! My name is Alice and I'm a third year Business Administration major with an emphasis in Accounting. I will be joining PwC's external audit team as a summer intern in June 2020! I was part of AALDP in the past as a mentee and it was really beneficial to have a mentor help me throughout the public accounting recruitment process, and I hope I can provide the same service to you. Outside of accounting, I work as a Student Assistant at Merage and am also one of the Community Coordinators for the Antleader Mentorship Program here on campus!
My likes include: KBBQ, writing, reading, making new friends. Dislikes: super hot weather, mushrooms, people who always flake.
Hello! I'm Brandon and I'm going into my third year in Business Administration with a minor in Japanese. I’m very into competitive video games, and actively play or have played DOTA 2, Starcraft 2, Hearthstone, League of Legends, Street Fighter, Tekken, Counter Strike, and a lot more. Aside from games, I'm also into anime, horror movies, and music. I would describe myself as slightly on the shy side, but I'm extremely passionate about the things I find interesting and get easily absorbed in new hobbies and experiences.
As a mentor I first and foremost want to make sure you find success in accounting recruitment or wherever you decide to take your career, but I also want to become great friends and help you make connections with the other mentors and mentees. I truly feel that the people I've met through this program have been the best part of it all and I hope that you'll feel the same way during the weeks to come. With all of that being said, I'm excited for this AALDP season and am looking forward to being a mentor!

Hello! My name is Chuck and I am a fourth year majoring in Business Economics with a double minor in Accounting and Digital Information Systems. I am currently pursuing a career path in public accounting specifically in the Audit/Assurance practice. In the past, I have recruited for and participated in several Summer Leadership Programs offered by well-known public accounting firms and would love to share my experiences with you all! One goal I have before college ends for me is to learn how to wakeboard as I have heard that it was very fun and exciting from people who has done it before. In my free time, I love going to the gym and playing racket sports like badminton and tennis. Moreover, I am also very interested in different types of music and have been part of the school orchestra for all four years of high school. I look forward to meeting you all soon and feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions! :)

Hi! My name is Jimmy Nguyen and I’m a 3rd year Business Administration major. I’m from Garden Grove, which is like a half hour drive from Irvine and I am also a commuter! People would often describe me as being energetic, easy-going, and sarcastic (maybe a bit too much sometimes). Other than that, I love watching movies, NBA (go lakers), comedies, MMA, spending money (very bad habit), and eating out (especially this). I joined AALDP last year, not knowing anything or anyone from accounting, but through this program, I met a bunch of great people that I can learn from but as well as hang out and grab food with. On top of that, I went from being unable to hold a 2-minute conversation with a professional to having hour long coffee chats. Because I had such a great experience, I want to share that with someone else!
Hello, my name is Johnny and I am a 3rd year majoring in Business Administration. During my freshman year, I knew nothing about accounting and spent most of my time in my dorm playing League and sleeping. I was super lost in my career path and had no idea what I wanted to do. Thankfully, last year one of my friends introduced me to AALDP and it became my first real perspective into accounting. I'm now able to proudly say that I have a pretty decent resume and way better networking skills than before. I've been through all the challenges thrown at me last year and I know what it's like to go in empty-handed and confused. So if you are ever scared or terrified, just know that I was 10x more awkward and confused, and was still able to make it through.
A little about me out of the accounting world: I tend to be a quiet and shy guy and it takes for me time to open up, but when I do I can get pretty crazy. I'm either always playing basketball, eating, at church, or hanging with friends. I'm always down to try new food places and it's literally the only thing I can do in Irvine so hmu if you need a food buddy! :)

I am a self-professed introvert who enjoys a good book and TV show/Anime, my favorites currently being Good Omens and Lucifer! Not to say I don't like doing food runs either-- I'm always up for some milk tea or pho.
I'm a lover of Video Games-- with my tastes ranging from Pokemon and Fire Emblem to Stardew Valley and Destiny (and everything else in between haha!). In what remains of my spare time, I enjoy hiking, cooking, and writing fiction.

I am excited to become a mentor for this upcoming year's AALDP program. I hope I get to meet everyone, but if not, here is some information about me. I am an incoming third year Business Administration student with an emphasis in Accounting and Finance, also minoring in Digital Information Systems. I was originally a Computer Science major, but we don't talk about that anymore... Some of my hobbies include food... and food. I really like food. If you're wondering what I like to eat, I really love poke. Other than that I love asian food in general, and acai. My favorite restaurants are Vox Kitchen, Calipoke, Tasty Noodle House, Noodology, Boiling Point, and Meiji Seimen. I can go on and on, but I can't remember everything right now. I also really like cake and coffee. Exploring new cafes is something I also really like doing. I am from San Francisco, so you probably infer where my love for coffee is from. Other things I like to do is to exercise. I try to hit the gym six times a week. I gotta work off all the food somehow. That's enough from me. The main takeaway from this is if you like to explore new places and eat, we will get along.

Currently, I am involved in Beta Alpha Psi and Lambda Phi Nu. Outside of those things, I love to rock climb, workout, sleep, and sleep in (even though I can't do that much longer).
