Kenny Tran: Will this UCB Champ TRANsform into the OSB Champ?

Today’s featured OSB contestant will be representing University of California, Berkeley (UCB): former AOSA Trustee, Kenny Tran ’18 from Rosemead, CA.


Kenny is a man with many talents: he is a great cook, intelligent, and very passionate about our profession. He loves trying new food and recipes; he would love to be a chef or bartender if he had time for a second career. Kenny claims, “The only thing better than eating good food is making it yourself.” Besides cooking, he likes to spend his spare time sharing his knowledge with other students via tutoring and watching fun shows like Futurama and Rick and Morty.

When asked how it feels to “retire” from the role of AOSA Trustee, Kenny states it’s just a title change:

“I believe that we have to hold ourselves accountable for improving the future of our profession. It’s exciting to see what the future of AOSA holds with the current team.”

After graduation, Kenny hopes to be part of a thriving group practice with his classmates in sunny southern California with a focus on Pediatrics or Binocular Vision. To add to that, he is considering obtaining a teaching position as well. What a well rounded guy!
