Jirayut Latthi emigrated from Thailand to the United States' Bay Area when he was nine years old. Aspiring to become a medical doctor, Jirayut is a recent graduate from the University of California-Berkeley, with a bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology. Throughout college, he funded his education with part-time jobs and private scholarships while staying involved in groups such as the Thai Student Association, Mentoring in Medicine & Science, ASPIRE at Asian Law Caucus, and Educators for Fair Consideration as a New American Scholar. He also hopes to pursue a Master's degree in Public Health and seeks to remedy the barriers that low-income and immigrant families of America face in accessing healthcare. His hobbies include singing, cooking, and continuing to channel his thoughts through his writing; with particular interest in the psychological effects of the undocumented status and identity on an individual. He believes that sharing his story as Asian and Undocumented will encourage others to step out of the shadows within their communities.
