Jessica NguyenJessica Nguyen

Major: Business Administration: Management Information Systems




Have you had an internship? If so, which company?

Project Coordinator Intern at KW Silicon City

Which student organizations are you a member of a student involvement experience?

Management Information Systems Association (MISA), Akbayan SJSU

Why did you become a Peer Leader?

I became a Peer Leader because I want to help incoming and current students with not only advising questions, but also to help them to get involved with student involvement in SJSU. As a student myself, I always have questions about my progress to graduate and how to build more connections with other business students. I want to help students get one step closer to their future goals.

What advice do you have for incoming students?

My advice for incoming students is to build connections by getting involved with student organizations at SJSU. Whether it’s a business organization or a social organization, there’s always something for everyone’s interests to make your SJSU experience more memorable.

Major: Business Administration: Corporate Accounting and Finance




Why did you become a Peer Leader?

I became a peer leader because I want to work with other students to figure out the solutions, revise my knowledge, and make new friends.

What advice do you have for incoming students?

My advice is do not procrastinate and do not let yourself fall behind. If you have time to do your homework, just do it. If you don’t understand a problem, you can figure it out by yourself through lessons on YouTube or other websites; and you can ask you professors, your peers, and your tutors.

Why did you become a peer leader?

I became a peer leader because I loved the idea of helping incoming and current business students. Whether it was through answering questions or giving my advice, past peer leaders and advisors have helped me a lot throughout my college career, and I hope to do the same for my peers.           

What advice do you have for incoming students?

Take advantage of all the opportunities and resources JHSSC and SJSU has to offer! Sign up for clubs that interests you, go to events, and don’t be afraid to try something new.

If you ever have questions, always reach out for help!
