Country: Vietnam
College: College of Alameda
Major: Biochemistry

In Vietnam, I had to choose my major right after finishing high school; and if I want to change to another major in another university, I had to start all over again. However, studying in a community college in the U.S. gives me more time and chances to think about what I want to do. I can decide on my major when I’m ready; and if I change my mind, there are still some general units that are accepted for every major and I just need to take additional classes to fulfill the requirements to transfer to a 4-year university.
