Hello, I am Linda Chang. I was born and raised in Merced, CA. Having a University built in my very own hometown was such a blessing and wonderful experience as I was able to see the Merced community grow in many dynamic ways. The introduction of UC Merced gave me an opportunity to pursue higher education right at home. Not only did the university strengthen me academically, it also nurtured me mentally and personally. I graduated in 2016 with a B.S. in Human Biology and minor in Psychology. In my free time, I enjoy fishing and camping out with nature along with jigsaw puzzles and family functions. I am proud to continue my journey with UC Merced in its drive for student success through higher education. GO BOBCATS!
