My name is Anna and I'm currently a global media and communications graduate student at USC's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. Before joining the Trojan family, I attended UCLA where I received my B.A. in Asian Studies.
When I'm not at USC, I'm probably eating my way through LA or exploring somewhere new. Although a Los Angeles native, I grew up traveling the world. During my undergraduate years, I studied abroad in three countries: the U.K., China, and South Korea. These experiences brought more context to my research into the economic, political, historical, and cultural intersections between the East and the West. The experiences have shaped my sensitivity to the varying cultures and consumption economies of the world and the reason I chose to study global media and communications.
Currently, I'm interested in the fields of global marketing and communication, especially in terms of branding and the glocalization of marketing.
