BEAM, Stanford Career Education – Bridging Education, Ambition, and Meaningful Work

PRIDE Alumni Spotlight

In honor of PRIDE month, meet Joseph “Joey” Topasn. Joey is currently a Project Manager at Dropbox. He is a Chamorro who grew up in Arizona and graduated from Stanford in 2015 with a Major in Philosophy. After graduation, he worked in business immigration as a paralegal, then later as a project manager for a tech company.

His family has inspired him to become who he is today, and he advises students to focus on their passions: “Spend more time identifying causes, values, and missions you can get behind, and less time finding The Job or The Success."
