Zodiac Sign: ... 

Hello! My name is Chia Moua and I currently hold senior status here at UAF, but a super senior college status having literally been in college for a majority of my life due to a ginormous love for learning. I was born in Chonburi, Thailand, but grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota and have been here in Alaska since 2015. My majors are psychology and communication and minors are philosophy and sociology. The career that I look forward to possessing after undergrad and grad school is a Communication professor that teaches others about interactions of human beings and the different ways that we portray that.
