Chloe Yeung

Chloe Yeung

Optometry

Hi! My name is Chloe and I’m currently a 2nd year student at UC Berkeley School of Optometry. I went to UBC for my bachelor’s degree majoring in biology. Towards the tail end of my time at UBC, I began considering optometry as a potential career choice but didn’t take it seriously until I began shadowing in a private practice. Navigating the application portal and writing personal statements was no easy feat, but with the guidance of my mentors I successfully interviewed at UCBSO and SUNY. I greatly appreciated the assistance from my friends and optometry mentors, so feel free to connect with me and ask questions!
