Emily Chu

Emily is sophomore (class of 2019) in the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Allied Health Sciences, with plans to attend medical school. She is interested in pediatrics and neonatal medicine, as well as obstetrics. Additionally, she is a member of the Honors Program.

At UConn, Emily is involved in the pre-medical society and the Women in Math, Science, and Engineering (WiMSE) learning community. She enjoys being a member of a learning community because she is surrounded by like-minded individuals, and is now a mentor for freshmen in Allied Health Sciences. She is also a sister in Sigma Alpha; the professional agriculture sorority on campus that is involved in many community service events here at UConn. She is excited for her first year as an ambassador, and hopes to help many prospective students along the way.
