Faith Xiong (She/Her)

School Psychology MAE | Virtual Campus

Hometown: Clovis, CA

My name is Faith Xiong, and I am currently pursuing my dreams in the field of education. I’m enrolled in a Master of Arts in Education program with a focus on School Psychology and working towards obtaining a Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) Credential. My passion lies in working closely with at-risk youth students, offering them the support and guidance they need to succeed. Outside of my academic pursuits, two things hold a special place in my heart. First, there are dogs-I absolutely adore them. Their unwavering loyalty and companionship bring endless joy to my life. Second, there’s my love for traveling. Exploring new destinations, experiencing diverse cultures, and embracing the beauty of the world is a true source of inspiration for me.

In essence, I’m on a mission to make a positive impact in the lives of the students I work with while cherishing the beauty of the world and the furry friends that make it even brighter.
