A.S. Director of Student Outreach


Hey, I'm Li Sheng (Finn) . I'm all about bringing people together – it's kind of my thing. This passion of mine? It got sparked back in high school when I dived into this project to mix up different student groups. It wasn't just about organizing events; it was about watching these unlikely friendships form, seeing barriers break down, and realizing how much we all have in common.

That's what drives me every day at Santa Monica College. As the person in charge of student outreach, I'm not just filling a role; I'm living out my passion. It's about more than just informing students about what's available to them. It's about creating those connections, fostering a sense of community, and making sure everyone feels like they belong.

Every day, I take what I learned from my high school days – that magic of bringing diverse people together – and apply it to my work at SMC. Whether it's through organizing events, facilitating discussions, or just being a listening ear, it's all fueled by this drive to see our student community thrive together.

In a nutshell, I'm here at SMC doing what I love most: building bridges, fostering connections, and watching the amazing things that happen when students from all walks of life come together and share their stories.
