Jessica Tran

Research Assistant

I was born and raised in Santa Clara and have lived here all my life.

I am a senior at Santa Clara University pursuing a degree in Psychology and minor in Communications. I work as a research assistant focusing on the Vietnamese population to further expand our study on the ?Real Cost of a Healthy Meal? to other ethnic backgrounds.

For the past 3 years, I have traveled on mission trips to Vietnam as founder of an organization called ?The Golden Heart Club? with goals of aiding orphans, the elderly, and other unfortunate cases. This past summer I coordinated an event raising over 30K and spent over a month traveling to very remote villages in Vietnam to help those in need.

I hope to pursue a career in marketing/public relations in the nonprofit sector in the future to utilize my skill set and to continue my passion in helping others.

In my free time I enjoy shopping, traveling, singing, and baking.
