Picture of Hawk Yao

Hawk Yao
Follows His Dreams

Languages have always been a huge part of Human Resources Benefits Specialist Hawk Yao's life. He grew up speaking Mandarin at home and English at school. He majored in German studies at UCLA. Now that love of languages is driving his decision to leave Mt. SAC and immerse himself in German culture by moving to Munich.

“My passion has always been languages,” says Hawk, who will leave Mt. SAC on July 17 to move permanently to Germany.
