At Princeton, My was heavily involved with the first-generation and low-income student organizations on campus, focusing on increasing awareness of class differences and advocating for more supportive policies. During her summers, she was a teaching fellow for Breakthrough Twin Cities and a program analyst intern for the Career and Technical Education (CTE) program at the D.C. Public School office. She was also the grant writer for the student-run non-profit, Homeworks, an organization looking to provide an afterschool boarding model for underserved middle and high school girls in the Trenton community. Her experiences have led her to better understand the inequities present within low-income communities and see how powerful education is in empowering students from these backgrounds.
My is interested in education policy and increasing access to education for underserved students. She is currently the Project 55 Fellow at Chicago Beyond, a youth equity platform working to improve the lives of Chicago’s youth.
