Thuy-Mai Nguyen was born and raised Phoenix, AZ, but trekked across the country to attend and adventure to Brown University. During her senior year at Brown, Thuy-Mai served as an Access Scholar with the NCAC program, so it is with great pleasure that she returns as a College Guide at Tolman Senior High School in Pawtucket, RI. Having graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Ethnic Studies, a concentration that tends to beg the question, "Well, what are you going to do with that?" she has been compelled to work in the education field. She focuses on low-income and first generation youth and young adults. In this next year (and beyond), Thuy-Mai hopes to build positive relationships, effectively engage within the education community, and ultimately help facilitate a culture that asks students and adults alike to consider and plan for "what's next."
