UW Bothell Husky 100

2024 winners

Every year, the University of Washington recognizes 100 undergraduate and graduate students from the Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma campuses who have made the most of their time at the UW — inside and outside the classroom.

These Husky 100 students actively connect the dots between what they learn in their studies with what they want to do to make a difference on campus, in their communities and for our world.

Six UW Bothell students were selected as part of the Husky 100 Class of 2024. We are proud to present these honorees here.

Emerald Chuesh

“My research on mindfulness interventions allows me to work directly with people — my peers — and find ways that would reduce their anxiety around exams. This was my first “I can make a difference” moment, and I love creating personal connections through my research. My work at a day camp for children with disabilities solidified my passion for pediatric health and health advocacy for marginalized groups.”

Antonia Dorn

“I started my Husky Experience as a first-generation, low-income, Filipina American student, and I am now a proud Triple-Dawg. I am driven by learning with and from others, and by knowing that in the most uncertain times is where change happens. I will always work for what I believe in because I now believe that I can be a part of the change I want to see in my communities.”

Gurkirat Singh Guliani

“Through my research endeavors in academic projects and initiatives supporting mental health awareness, I have discovered my passion for using technology for social good and making a meaningful impact on campus and beyond. I have been able to connect different domains with what I have studied in my master’s program and continue to make more interdisciplinary contributions.”

Vivian Lam

“My time at UW Bothell began with embracing a growth mindset, guiding me through challenges in conducting mindfulness research and mentoring young girls in STEM. My academic and leadership experiences at UW have inspired me to pursue a career as a physician, where I strive to empower others and improve health care accessibility through community intervention.”

Dang Truong

“The evening that I decided to quit on my dreams, I received a message about a research opportunity at the Institute for Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine. I had the chance to be mentored, to learn, to grow and to commit to a future in science and research. I also received a Mary Gates Research Scholarship and a NASA Space Grant Consortium Scholarship. Above all, I have a kind mentor who’s instilled in me the courage to pursue all the opportunities ahead.”

“my life goal is to change the world. i plan to ignite new pathways within the long lineages of social justice movements — to create equitable futures for humanity, specifically those forced into the margins; BIPOC; queer, trans and nonbinary folks like myself; and all their intersections. i embrace silliness and joy and curiosity, because embodying queer and trans joy is a radical act. i strive to move people effectually move them into action and change worldviews. As praxis, this is building communal spaces that uplift these communities.”
