Alyson Yi

Major: Accounting
Senior, 1st year OA

Hello all! My name is Alyson Yi, and I am a Senior Accounting major in Albers School of Business and Economics. I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, and braved myself for college in Seattle, Washington. I never expected to become so attached to Seattle as I am now. The city really is my home away from home. Some fun facts: I am an animal-loving, beach-going, adventure-seeking video game enthusiast, who can never pass up food. If you have any questions or just want to say hi, swing by the front desk.  

Caylee Kurasaki

Major: Pre-Business
Junior, 2nd year OA

Hi there! I'm Caylee, and I'm a junior majoring in Business Management. I grew up in Hawaii on the island of Oahu but I love living in Seattle. When I'm not working or studying, you can find me at Oasis drinking my staple honey milk tea, binge-watching Netflix (Scandal is my current show, I'm obsessed) or exploring Seattle trying to find the best Japanese food. I'd love to help you with your writing so if you see me at the desk, don't be afraid to come and say hi!
