2021 Husky 100
Huskynurses in the Husky 100
The UW School of Nursing is proud to announce that three nursing students, Evie Devera BSN ’21, Amanda Yang BSN ’21, and Yuan Zhang BSN ’21 were chosen for the 2021 Husky 100.
“I am proud of our Husky Nurses selected for the Husky 100. This honor is bestowed on a select group of students who have gone beyond simply mastering knowledge in their field. They are committed to connecting what happens inside and outside of the classroom and applying what they learn to make a difference on campus, in their communities, and for the future. Through their passion, leadership and commitment, Evie, Amanda and Yuan inspire all of us to shape our own Husky Experience and we look forward to what the future has in store for them.”
Established in 2015, the Husky 100 recognizes 100 outstanding undergraduate and graduate students each year from all three UW campuses who are making the most of their time at the UW. This is a remarkable way to recognize UW students who actively connect what happens inside and outside of the classroom (or Zoom room!) and apply what they learn to make a difference on campus, in their communities and for the future.
While the challenges of the past year have been extraordinary, so too have been the stories of UW students’ resilience, compassion and community impact. Through the remote learning environment, Huskies are continuing to discover, create, innovate and advocate in order to advance a healthier and more equitable present and future.
Congratulations to our Evie, Amanda and Yuan! We’re proud of your dedication and commitment to the School of Nursing, UW, and your community.
Evie Devera, BSN ’21 “I am a proud Filipina Husky Nurse who has spent her time at UW delving into community enrichment and empowerment. These communities have given so much time, energy, support, and resources to those around them. As a Husky 100, I plan to take the skills and resources I’ve gained to challenge health disparities across underserved communities and equitably disperse resources and support through policy and program management at the systemic level.”
Amanda Yang, BSN ’22 – “My Husky experience has allowed me to see my potential as a leader and build resilience in times of significant challenges. As a proud daughter of Chinese-Vietnamese immigrant parents, I am motivated to amplify the voices of historically-excluded communities and combat against systemic barriers. I strive to intertwine my passions for mental health and nursing while practicing health equitable values.”
Yuan Zhang, BSN ‘21 – As a Husky nurse, I strive to promote health equity in our communities and mitigate the effects of immigration as a social determinant of health. My future goal is to continue to provide holistic healthcare with cultural humility in mind. My Husky experience has prepared me for a career in healthcare, empowered me to become a leader, and explored my identity as a first-generation Chinese immigrant and college student.
