Joyce Yang is a freshman in the School of Foreign Service, planning on majoring in Science, Technology and International Affairs. She is from Northern Virginia and her proximity to DC growing up gave her many opportunities to learn about and engage with advocacy and public service. Her proseminar, “Ethical Challenges in Literature and in Life,” with Professor Albert Pierce helped her cultivate a passion for ethics and social impact that she hopes to bring into the research she will be doing. Through MURFs, she is working with Professor Joshi to map gender disparities within academia in India. On campus, she is a layout designer for Bossier Magazine, hosts a radio show with Georgetown Radio, and volunteers with the Hypothermia Outreach Team.
