Alicia Chung, Math Buddy!

| September 7, 2010

My name is Alicia Chung and I am a first-year Math Buddy. I grew up in New York City and am a native of the Harlem schooldistricts. After graduating from A. Philip Randolph High School in 2001, I pursued my BA/MPH at Tufts University. During this time, I worked on pediatric asthma education programs in the greater Boston Area while completing my master’s degree. Since returning to New York in 2006, I have worked in the private sector as a health care analyst for the managed care and pharmaceutical industries. However, I never lost touch of my love for children and continued to tutor and mentor young adolescents in my free time. I am a first year EdD student at Teachers College, Columbia University, with a focus in health eduction. I am excited to be apart of the Reading and Math Buddies program and ready to take on the new year!!!
