Innovative, collaborative, value-driven thinkers and doers.
I didn’t have a teacher of color in high school. I loved science but always thought that STEM fields were reserved for white people. Now I teach chemistry at Juanita High School. I am that teacher of color, breaking down barriers and showing students that they do belong and can succeed in STEM careers.Alex Margarito-Lopez Class of 2019, Chemistry
I love being a part of this program (Digital Scholars). It’s exactly for people like me who maybe don’t know what direction they’re going in or how to get to where they want to be.Parisa Soltanian Junior, Computer Science & Software Engineering
Young people of today must not forget the future that can still be made. In every sense, we must remember our responsibilities as citizens to create the change we want to see in the world and to fight for the rights of those around us.Andy Walker-Tran Senior, Law, Economics & Public Policy
As a first-generation student, I know how overwhelming and confusing college can be, and I also know what an impact having a peer coach who is invested in you can make. It felt really good to be that for someone else — to pass that knowledge, insight and guidance that I remember needing so much.Jadyn De Jesus Class of 2023, Health Studies
On joining UW Bothell in September: I was excited by the opportunity to grow the workforce development side and build academic pathways here. I found it very motivating the way the University is helping students — some of whom never envisioned themselves in these high-tech jobs — and is raising awareness and connecting them to these careers.Guy Hamilton Director, Center for Biotechnology Innovation & Training
