Hello! My name is Aeriel Anderson. In my role as Assistant Dean and Advisor to Pan Asian students, I seek to foster individual, academic, social, cultural, and leadership development within Dartmouth's Pan Asian community. I offer one-on-one counseling and advising for individual students, consultation and organizational support for Dartmouth's 20+ Pan Asian-related student groups, and work collaboratively with campus colleagues to advance college-wide inclusion through outreach and educational programming. I joined the Dartmouth community in August 2012, after living for a year in Europe. During my time abroad, I had the privilege to do some international consulting around issues of identity and diversity in higher education. Prior to that, I worked in the Center for Multicultural Equity & Access at Georgetown University. I earned my my Master's in Counseling and College Student Personnel from the University of Maryland and my Bachelor of Arts in Strategic Communication from the University of Minnesota. I am deeply passionate about creating space for students to engage in authentic dialogues - exploring the complex intersections of their personal identities while developing their leadership capacity and ability to connect with others across difference. If you'd like to set up an individual appointment, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hi! My name is Huan He, and I'm super excited to be a PAC intern my senior year! The Pan Asian Community has been a constant source of strength and comfort to me throughout my Dartmouth career. Not only have I made lifelong friends through various PAC student organizations, but I have also grown professional thanks to the leadership opportunities available. This year, I hope to give underclassmen the opportunity to make the Pan Asian Community a part of their Dartmouth home. Another goal I have for this year is to create a stable physical sense of place for the Pan Asian Community on campus.

My name is Yoo Jung Kim '14. I was originally born in Anyang, Republic of Korea and moved to Mukilteo, Washington in 1990, where I live to this day. I am interested in studying the role of Asian American in the social, cultural, and economic fabric of the United States in an academic context. I was lucky enough to have an exposure to Asian American Studies courses during my first two years at Dartmout hCollege, and I am here to advocate for the continuing advancement of Asian American Studies.

Hi everyone! I am very excited for PAC to be a huge part of my Dartmouth experience as I embark on my last year of college. Over the past three years, I have had some of my fondest memories, most meaningful conversations, and most lasting friendships form through organizations in the Pan Asian Community and I am excited to be involved in replicating and enhancing that same experience for the Class of 2016 and upperclassmen. I hope to be involved in deepening and broadening the Pan Asian experience for students in more ways that one, but my main goal for this year is to expand the AASPIRE program, which seeks to bring together Asian and Asian American women of Dartmouth for informal conversation and reflection.

My name is Ayda Ramadan and I'm a '13 Studio Art major from Seattle, WA. I am interested in the Middle East and South Asian, which reflects my mixed race heritage - half Egyptian and half Sri Lankan. Since my freshman fall I have been involved with Milan, the South Asian student association. I served as a Pan Asian Council (PAC) representative, which exposed me to the Office of Pluralism and Leadership (OPAL). Milan was the defining experience that led me to become a PAC intern this year, and I am excited to serve the community that gave me a strong sense of belonging and support in my first year here. I am really excited to be working with OPAL and PAC, and I hope to make the Pan Asian Community at Dartmouth stronger and closer in the next year.

Hello! My name is Kevin Xiao and part of the graduating class of 2013. I've been involved with PAC since my freshman fall through its various organizations. Off campus, I've worked in social justice organizations related to community issues, such as Chinese immigrant tenant rights through CAAAV in NYC. Through my time at Dartmouth, particularly through PAC organizations like DAO and KSA, I've come to realize my interest in marketing and communications; my role in PAC is to expand PAC's digital reach on campus through social media and traditional media. In my spare time, I take photos for the Dartmouth Aegis (Yearbook) as well as freelance.
