KALINA KWONG ’14
Never at a loss for Cal spirit, Kalina Kwong fondly recalls her favorite memory as a Berkeley student. “While I was chairwoman of the UC Rally Committee, I led a team that coordinated a stadium-wide card stunt and assisted with other Memorial Stadium reopening festivities,” she says. “The event itself was an amazing experience, but what really makes it my favorite memory is the fact that my mom, dad, and brother traveled from Texas to experience it with me.”
Kalina says that Berkeley “helped me to find myself,” and three years after graduating, she happily — and consistently — gives back to the university that’s given her so much. In addition to making gifts to The Cal Fund, she’s also supported the UC Rally Committee and the Cal Band.
“Cal gave me the opportunity to explore what it meant to be me and gave me inspiring support from the Cal family,” she says. “I give back because I want all future Cal students to have the same opportunities — to grow, to be confident, and to find themselves.”
