2020 District 6 Young Woman in Public Affairs Award

The District 6 2020 YWPA recipient is Elizabeth Wong, a graduating senior at University School of Milwaukee. Elizabeth plans to pursue a degree in biomedical engineering, which “fuses both my love of medicine and scientific innovation, but also allows me to fulfill my greatest personal goal: serving others. As a biomedical engineer, in order to help save lives, I will work to develop creative solutions to global health issues and help improve the way in which we diagnose and treat patients. In doing so, I endeavor to address global health inequities and develop and improve not only healthcare products, but society as a whole.”

 Elizabeth’s impressive resume includes serving as president of the forensics team, co-president of the Spanish National Honor Society, co-editor-in-chief of the school’s Phoenix Literary Magazine, and a member of student council. In her roles as a student leader in the Global Scholars Program and vice president, and a dance teacher, at the Milwaukee Chinese Community Center, she celebrates global diversity and highlights cultural richness. She served four years as a student researcher at the Department of Pediatrics at the Medical College of Wisconsin. As president of Operation Dream, a non-profit providing academic tutoring and social support to underserved youth, she has worked to combat education inequality in Milwaukee.

 Elizabeth was selected from among nine applicants.
