Aja organizes housing arrangements for both homestay and residence hall students. She finds welcoming host families for homestay students and ensures that students are happy with their housing on campus or in homestays. Aja helps students who want to move into new housing situations and ensures that that all students are picked up from the airport and safely arrive in their housing on or off campus.
"I’m excited to help students have the best possible experience at Kings Colleges and in Boston. Having lived in homestays, dormitories, and private apartments in China, I understand what it’s like to live in all sorts of housing situations abroad.
I first started working with international students as a volunteer ESL tutor in college and went on to teach English in China after graduating. I also worked for a Chinese software company and in the film industry in Boston. I went to college near Washington, D.C. and studied international relations, Spanish, and East Asian history, culture, and politics.
For fun I love trying foods from around the world, exploring Boston, going to live music shows, drawing, reading, and studying Chinese."
