Angela, C'23

  • Major Biochemistry
  • Hometown Brooklyn, New York

When Angela is not practicing with the rest of the Penn synchronized swimming team, studying biochemistry, or working with the Chinese Student Association, she spends her time as the Marketing Co-Chair for the Foundation of International Medical Relief for Children (FIMRC). FIMRC recently took on the mission of an Adopt-A-Project, specifically water purifiers for a rural village in Peru. Angela has also volunteered at The Clyde F. Baker Penn Transplant House, organizing game nights for patients and even cooking them brunch. “From where my family grew up in mainland China, I am still aware of the lack of medical help and access to medical resources for many countryside families and their children.” Once she graduates, Angela plans on attending medical school to become a physician so that she can continue doing this important work.

“As a First Generation and lower-income student, my scholarship is part of the reason I am able to be at Penn.”
