Angela Wong is a first-generation college student who attended Georgetown University. Originally from York City, she was raised by parents who emigrated from Malaysia.

She worked as Features Editor for Kents and a Peer Writing Tutor. By graduation, Angela was inducted into the Cum Laude Honor Society and Tri-M Music Honor Society. A product of contrasting school landscapes, Angela has become passionate about promoting social justice and educational equity.
