Tiffany Lee came east from California armed with a tennis racket and lofty hopes for her college experience as a Rice Owl. Both in the classroom and on the tennis court, those hopes and dreams have been met.
"Rice has far fulfilled my expectations. Between living in the best residential college (Baker), my amazing teammates, and the friends I have made along the way, I could not have asked for a better school."
Off the tennis court, Lee has devoted much of her time to psychology and policy studies. She has also studied Spanish, her third language as she is already fluent in English and Chinese.
She is interested in a career in counseling children and families in the future. "After I graduate from Rice, I would like to attend graduate school in child and family psychology. This is the area of psychology that has really excited me, and I can see myself working in that field."
Last summer, Lee worked as an intern for University Directories, an advertising and sales company in San Diego. She managed a sales team of 4 other interns to hit the sales goal of $80,000 in 10 weeks. Lee and her team sold yellow page advertising to local businesses in the UC San Diego market. While the experience didn't make Lee want to jump into the sales industry, it did confirm her desire to work with people.
"The internship affirmed my desire to interact with people in whatever I do. Working and communicating directly with people is definitely important to me in choosing a career in the future." Lee said.
Lee has also worked for The Wave magazine in Santa Clara, where she wrote several articles which were published. She also worked closely with clients of the magazine to develop business contacts for products of interest.
While at Rice, Lee finds pleasure in leading tours for students from inner city elementary schools.
"I love showing these kids all of the wonderful opportunities Rice offers." explained Lee.
In her spare time, Lee likes to travel, paint, and play poker.
"I am a California girl who enjoys the simple things in life. In addition to graduate school and a career in psychology, I would like to buy a house, open a restaurant, and have a family." said Lee.
With this agenda, Lee will be busy and productive as one of Tomorrow's Leaders.
