My name is Nicole Baty, I am of Asian and African American descent. I am the first in my family to have a Bachelor’s of Science in Chemical Engineering with a concentration in Bioengineering. My educational career has experienced many unforgiving times, and yet my drive and passion to promote healthy education is fierce and unending. Through the University of New Mexico, I held leadership positions as the president of National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), vice president of Generation Justice, and various leadership roles in the Black Student Alliance. I am also a McNair Scholar, who is working towards a future in family medicine with in emphasis in women’s health. As corny as it may seem, Phil Collins once wrote, “In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn,” which I have made my personal motto, for I believe learning should always be a two-way street. I hope no matter where fate takes me, I will be able to live by this and continue engaging in communities of color through community engagement in the capacity of mentoring.
