Meet our New Diversity Ambassador, Ivy Duong!

Xin Chao! I go by the name Ivy and I’m a second-year student majoring in Hospitality and Tourism Management at Paterson Global Food Institute.

Coming from Vietnam with a strong collectivist culture just a year ago, I’m eager to learn more about all the different perspectives from the lovely people here so that it can help me continue on my journey of mastering myself. I strongly believe that each individual is unique. By welcoming, accepting, and learning from the differences, we are open to new experiences and eventually become a better version of ourselves, making this whole community a better place. I understand that there will always be challenges and tough times but keep in mind that you are not alone and we are all in this together.

Feel free to reach out if you have any concerns, or just simply want to make new friends! (I’m really into music and have been teaching myself to play guitar for quite a while so let’s have some fun time together!!!)
