Youth Ambassador, UCA WAVES Coordinator
Jennifer Tu is currently a medical student at Duke School of Medicine and Theology, Medicine, and Culture fellow at Duke Divinity School, aspiring to become a psychiatrist after graduating next year. She is committed to growing in and advocating for antiracism through her vocation as a physician, identity as a Chinese American, and faith as a Christian. A child of immigrants, Jennifer grew up hearing about her parents’ stories of survival during the Chinese Cultural Revolution and has worked toward reconciling their story of loss and redemption with her own. She is passionate about building human connections across generations and hopes to address transgenerational immigrant trauma with the Emerging Scholars team.
