Transfer spotlight: Arizona Western College student Nguyen Khoi Phung
Before becoming a student at Arizona State University, Nguyen Khoi (Korey) Phung grew up in a working-class family in the country of Vietnam, where his mother held several jobs simultaneously to provide for him and his sister.
When Phung and his family migrated to the United States, his mother had to start all over again, without knowing the language or culture. That experience and his mother’s sacrifice made Phung realize that education could be the key to improving their quality of life. “I made a promise to myself that even if I make mistakes, I won’t ever upset my mom,” he said. “By pursuing higher education, I will give us a better life.”
Having settled in Yuma, Arizona, Phung decided to begin his educational journey at Arizona Western College where he successfully completed his associate degree before transferring to ASU. Today, Phung is studying psychology in ASU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences . He is also working for Academic Alliances as a transfer student ambassador, educating prospective transfer students all about the benefits of MyPath2ASU.
Read more about Phung as he shares advice for students who are interested in transferring to ASU.
