A former student-athlete at UH-Manoa originally from the Pacific Northwest, Peggy Liang received her Bachelor of Science in Family Resources two years ago. She worked as an independent living specialist for a non-profit organization that serves the deaf, hard of hearing and deaf blind community for a little over a year.
She decided to further pursue her studies with a graduate degree in public administration. She hopes to work in the public sector or government and to continue to give back to the community. Liang also attended NCCWSL in June at the University of Maryland, College Park.
“I am thrilled to get the opportunity to attend NCCWSL because I see it as an opportunity to network, build my personal and professional background and new insights. This opportunity would open more doors for me when I graduate with a Master of Public Administration,” she said.
“I am grateful to have this opportunity to attend NCCWSL,” she added after the event. “I had a chance to network, inspire and be inspired by women. I like to see that we are doing something progressive on our part in various communities and even different countries too! At end, we are not just future leaders… We are now leaders!”
