Fall 2019 MyStory Student Volunteer Mengna

Hi everyone! My name is Mengna and I am an international student from China, majoring in Business Administration. Now I’m a Student Assistant both in Center for Leadership and Service and the Intensive English Language Program. As a sophomore student in this college, all the way from China to USA, I have been through homesickness, culture shock, anxiety, confusion, and so much more.

I am willing and glad to share all of my stories and experiences with everyone. Project MyStory is not just a storytelling event, but a stress release, a release if you are suffering, and a place to make new friends. We are all here to help and patiently listen to all your problems, and to help you find a solution.


The first program is Monday, September 9 at 6:30 p.m, in Science Library Room 340. The topic of the evening: “Adjusting to a New Academic Culture: It’s a Different World.”

Established in March 2015, Project MyStory is a community building effort to help students better acclimate to UAlbany and to work more effectively toward their goals. We began in UAlbany’s Academic Support Center (ASC), where you will see many of the posters featured above. We are now co-housed in ASC and in the Center for International Education and Global Strategy (CIEGS).
