Xingchen (Amber) Chen

Amber’s scholarship allowed her to travel throughout India, where she spent most of her time working on health policy research with the Public Health Foundation of India. After witnessing the social implications of poor sanitation and water quality, she also wanted to help people on an individual basis—so she partnered with local volunteers and entrepreneurs to launch a campaign to provide people in need with affordable toilets. Her experiences in India have reinforced her desire to work with underprivileged people around the world.
