I had been out of college for quite some time and had many questions and concerns and the staff at Otis was ready to help me. I decided to go to college to fulfill a dream of mine to get a degree. Thiswas instilled in me bymy grandmother who made me promise her that I would go to college before she passed away. Unfortunately, she isn’t here now with me, but I know she is in my heart. Why I joined SVAI decided to join SVA to help give back even more to the Otis students. While I was a Peer Mentor I heard many concerns from my peers. During those times I knew a little bit about how to get answers and make a difference but now as aSVA member I have more of a voice in creating those answers and making things happen.

With the training I acquired here at Otis I know I will be able to make the impossible possible.
NameJoshua Chang Year & Major Sophomore in Architecture. Why I'm at Otis I love art, music, and technology. I come 12 hours north from a little place called Mount Shasta, my home. So this is a pretty big change of lifestyle moving to LA and I love it. Also, I only applied to Otis. Why I joined SVA I joined SVA so I could help all the students at Otis fulfill the need for safety and to make new ideas come true. Maybe even help students break out of that shell. Anything to make our campus look better, smarter, and more efficient. I'll always be here. Plans after college I will miss Otis, but I will work at a well-known architectural firm, where I will build my career. One day, I hope to have my own firm. If I do become famous, I hope to build my own cruise line company and airline company. I have big dreams in the future, but I believe I have the energy and enthusiasm to get there!
