Sabrina Nguyen, ASPIRE Counselor

Meet Your Counselor

Sabrina Nguyen (she/her)

My name is Sabrina Nguyen and I am the part-time ASPIRE counselor! I was born and raised in Orange County and am a first-generation college student. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies and Sociology and a Master’s degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Student Development in Higher Education (SDHE) at CSULB. As a first-generation Vietnamese-American, I am passionate about serving the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community. It is important for me to create a safe environment for students so that they can feel supported throughout their time at Golden West College. I believe in the importance of community and I hope to bring that into the ASPIRE program as I build this community with our students. I welcome any students into my office and would love to collaborate with you all to make meaningful events, services, and traditions.
