I’m going into my third year at PCC with plans to major in bioengineering. Besides my work with ASPCC, I’m also the Vice President of Scholarship for Beta Phi Rho (the Southeast Campus’ chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society) and a member of the Southeast STEM Center’s Student Advisory Council. My primary goals for this year are to better address food and housing insecurity, the rising costs of college (tuition, textbooks, fees, etc.), and student retention through a focus on equitable student success.

Vice President | Director of Civic Engagement – Tammy Tran Tammy Tran

My name is Tammy Tran and I am a student of Portland Community College. I am currently pursuing a Finance major and plan to transfer to the University of Oregon and finish my Bachelor degree. I have volunteered ever since in eighth grade volunteering for my local public library, Multnomah County Holgate Library. The library was when I realize that it brings me pleasure to help give back to the community and lead me to volunteer with other opportunities. When entering my first year at PCC, I decided join Passion Impact club. The club got to encouraged students to volunteer by providing volunteer opportunities and give that extra push of experiencing with different type of nonprofit organizations. By the end of the year, I slowly made my way up as a club coordinator to continue on the torch of volunteering as a whole team and putting on more events. When I have free time, I enjoy to fold paper origami stars and stash them into little glass jars because I find it satisfying to make strips of papers as I hear the sound of tearing strips. I also find doodling on a notebook paper in quiet places or outside to be peaceful because I find it to be very soothing. One of the funny trait about me is that I sometimes have a delayed reaction whenever someone sneak up on me even when I am off guard. A leader means to represent the voices for those who do not have the opportunity of being heard and bringing these many voices together to take the necessary action. These voices can definitely make a difference because as a community we are stronger when we work together with the essential resources that a leader can help create. Also I believe it is important to take the risks of sacrificing your own comfort zone to make a positive change for others. Leaders built a foundation that uses rational thinking to consider all of the options and knowing the drawbacks. They should be able to set an example as role models for others and be someone who has the confidence to walk together with them to the desired destination.

I am an Oregon Promise student going into my second year at PCC. I am working towards an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree to move into a Oregon university. From there I plan to work towards a degree in sociology and a minor in political science or business. Then I plan to work as a Recreational Therapist training new youth councilors and helping to run camps for children and young adults in need of a compassionate and empowering community. In my spare time I enjoy biking, playing games, going camping, and cooking. Along with school I work with Camp HOPE Oregon as an intern with Clackamas Women’s Services through the Family Justice Center. Being a leader means helping empowering others and creating an inclusive successful environment for all.

Director of Student Resources – Nhu Ngo

She | Her | Hers
Hi everyone, my name is Nhu Ngo, pronounce N-OO N-G-OH. I am a first-generation college student, full time worker (I’m running my own business) and full time student. I’m finishing my last year at PCC for an Associate Degree in Accounting and then transferring for a Bachelor Degree in Supply Chain and Logistic Management. I felt in love with Oregon since I moved here three years ago. I love spending time in natural parks, hiking, exploring new places and baking. 🙂 This is my third year working at the Student Government Association. I feel so fortunate to get involved in student leadership for that long because I have learned and grown a lot since then. Being a student leader has trained and challenged me to be able advocate for others, lend my hands to the community and more importantly become a person who I ever never thought I could be.

Student Programs Coordinator – Jorge Trujeque Ruiz Jorge Trujeque Ruiz

When I graduate and finish with everything, I want to be a nurse. I want to spread happiness and make everyone happy. I’ve always wanted to be well known too, but who knows what the future holds. I love to be on social media! I love to promote myself and kindness. I always smile. I love to hang out with others and go volunteering. Something that’s really funny, but sad is that I believe everything. Truly very sad. I can make people laugh really fast, I crack jokes, both appropriate and inappropriate. Sorry that may sound bad, but that is who I am. What you see from me, is really what you get. A student leader to me is someone to leads others in the right direction, and cares deeply about others success.

Club Advocate – Cong Nguyen Cong Nguyen

He | Him | His
Hi my name is Cong, I’m currently striving to get a bachelor in general science and biology. My goal is to get into dental school at OHSU and graduate. During my spare time, I love to be active so hiking, playing sports, and jogging are some of the stuff you’d find me doing. I have a passion for dogs, and other animals. One of my favorite thing to do is exploring Oregon, people say Oregon is a boring state. I completely disagree with that statement, there are so many things you can do here. Take a step outside and you’re breathing one of the best air in the U.S. Go further and you’d find amazing ecosystems all around you with magnificent geology features. Not to mention the antique shops, hidden restaurants, great people, and much more. I also have an interest in politics, and was apart of the office of State Representative Janelle Bynum for the 2017 legislative session. It was a great learning experience. My motto is observe and learn as much as I can from the people around me. Everyone has their own walk of life, you never know what knowledge they might contain. Being a student leader requires me to take responsibility, and put myself up against any obstacles. It’s important for me to help the students at PCC as much as I can, and improve the student body as a whole. My personality is to take charge, but not in a reckless way. Listening to what others have to say is essential to reaching a resolution, like I said above you never know what knowledge others can contain. You won’t always be in a position of power, and that’s not a bad thing. Being the leader requires that person to be occupied with many options and considerations. When you’re not the one leading it gives you time to think outside the box and you’re granted with more freedom. My favorite quote is “You need an attitude of service. You’re not just serving yourself. You help others to grow up and you grow with them.” -David Green

Hello my name is Aliccia and I love animals. My dream job is to be a drug and alcohol counselor. I love helping people Which is why the club advocate is a perfect fit for me. I love helping animals and one way I do that is volunteering at Multnomah County Animal Shelter by fostering kittens and working in the shelter itself. If you asked me my favorite color I would say baby blue. My greatest accomplishment (so far) is going to college. What is my biggest challenge? I would have to say educational wise math and real life it would be speaking out to much.
