Minh Truong is a second-year master’s student at UCLA’s School of Nursing. He moved to the United States during high school to pursue his American dream. As an immigrant and a first-generation college student, he was passionate about making a difference in his community which led him to be involved in various community health organizations during his undergraduate career. After obtaining a B.A. in Political Science from UCLA, he worked for First-Generation Experience at UCLA as a special program assistant where he coordinated 14 different educational programs that cater to incoming students from underserved communities. He also worked for an international company as a cultural exchange mentor before his master’s year. Eventually, his passion for science and art brought him to the profession of nursing. Currently, he serves as the vice president of Broad Spectrum, the first LGBTQIA+ student organization at the School of Nursing. He aspires to become a nurse practitioner and work with hepatitis patients from underserved communities in the future.
