Emily Chen is currently a sophomore majoring in Science Business, a course of study that incorporates courses from the basic areas of business along with the four basic areas of science. With a minor in public service / policy, she is exploring her interests in healthcare law and medicine within the nonprofit sector. Topics in global health are particularly interesting to her, so the rights of those with HIV/AIDS is a topic that she looks forward to seeing you all collaborate and debate solutions upon. She competed on her high school’s Model UN team (in her hometown of Philadelphia’s suburbs), and committees such as UNHRC and SOCHUM have always been her favorite due to my passion for social justice across the globe. At Notre Dame, she involved in GlobeMed, a global health club that partners with a sustainability and disease prevention NGO in Laos. She is also active in Students Consulting for Nonprofit Organizations and previously served on Elections Committee for Judicial Council, a branch of the Notre Dame Student Union. In her free time, she loves watching Black Mirror, cooking cultural cuisines, and discovering new pop music through Spotify.
