My name is Suthimah Pheuanxayavong. (SU-DA-MA PUN-SCI-UH-VUNG)
I am a first year student at SCTCC, transferred from SCSU. I have changed my field of study about six times since Fall 2014 when I was a college freshman. To start, in my last trimester of high school I was set on becoming a marketing major to join the Herberger Business School at SCSU. I am honestly not sure why I was set on that idea. I am thoroughly interested in the research behind marketing, but do not exactly care for actual process of marketing itself. While I took a class regarding the business school, we became familiarized with our MBTI profiles. I discovered I am a INFJ , which has greatly impacted my life since. I then was interested in information systems, instructional technology, computer science, graphic design, computer programming, and now I am content with being in the Web Design and Development program at SCTCC. Strangely enough, it seems to fit into the careers for my MBTI type. Full circle.
Seemingly, unlike others I am not exactly sure what I would like to do when I graduate just yet. I am part of the program due to the fact that I just like coding, developing and designing things for the Internet. Being a part of a two year program instead of four years of bouncing around majors and spending a large sum of money has made my load of stress regarding a future way better. I know now that I genuinely enjoy what I am doing, and I do not want to put my all into something I actually do not enjoy. So for now my plan is to just figure it out along the way.
I lived in Robbinsdale, MN for the first 9 years of my life, then my family moved to Zimmerman, MN, about 45 mins away from St. Cloud, where I've lived since. My family consists of my parents (pictured above), my older sister Samantha (not pictured), and our pets. Altogether we have two dogs and four cats.
These are a few of my favorite things, not in any order, just some favorite things I like and enjoy:
