Here at Brown, I'm a mentor for the International Mentoring Program as well as an EMT for Brown EMS, our campus ambulance service. I've also been working with a professor at the School of Public Health conducting research on treatments for opioid use disorder. During the past two years, I developed an interest in reading and writing (mostly non-fiction) and am currently in my first semester as a Writing Fellow. Outside of all this, I enjoy exploring different running routes around Providence, my favorite ones at the moment being East Bay Bike Path!

    Hola! I am Ivy Zhuang (she/her), and I am a member of the class of 2025 from Beijing, China. I am planning on studying history and psychology here at Brown, but I am also interested in languages and performing arts. Outside of academics, I am a senior editor for the peer-reviewed Brown Journal of History, a writer for Critical Review which helps Brown students navigate the Open Curriculum, and an undergraduate Teaching Assistant for Mandarin Chinese. I am also involved with various theater projects and student organizations on campus. I can't wait to meet all of you!
