Wilson Saiki Junior was born and raised in Brazil, and moved to the United States in 2013. He’s currently studying political science at San Diego City College and hopes to have a career in government or in progressive organizations. He’s interested in pursuing his master’s degree in public policy. Wilson decided to study political science after campaigning in the 2015-2016 presidential primary election. Even though he’s not yet a citizen, Wilson volunteered for Senator Bernie Sanders campaign and had the opportunity to learn more about the American political system. At City College, he’s a member of Phi Theta Kappa. He’s also the vice president of the Asian and Pacific Islander Student Alliance and plans to transfer to UC Berkeley or UCSD in the fall of 2019.
