Major: Biomedical Sciences
Hometown: Rochester, NY
I’m Emilyn Nguyen, and I’m your CHST Senator for this upcoming academic year! I am born and raised in Rochester, New York. Continuing my academics at RIT, I am still gaining new experiences, learning from diverse opportunities, and meeting different people daily. Currently, I am a third year Biomedical Sciences student with endeavors to pursue Medicine and Public Health with hopes to contribute to the creation of healthier communities, and combat the health disparities that exist globally. I enjoy traveling, and particularly participating in Global Health projects. My recent medical trip to Honduras this summer was my favorite experiences where I was able to play a part in the growth and betterment of a community. Aside from my endeavors, my work and involvement to help better communities includes being able to play a part in someone’s health through being a Taekwondo instructor, advocacy through being a part of Best Buddies RIT, and professional-development through my involvement with HSTSA and undergraduate research. I also enjoy maintaining my blog, sharing my passions for science, public health and medicine, but also art, photography and writing. Appreciating the intricacies in my life has encouraged me see different perspectives and challenge myself creatively and academically, globally and culturally.
