Undergraduate Ambassadors

SEAS Undergraduate Ambassadors

The SEAS Undergraduate Ambassadors program is a student leadership opportunity for rising juniors and seniors. The program supports the development of the SEAS community through Ambassadors’ participation in admissions events, community outreach activities, special programming, and peer mentoring within their respective majors. The Ambassadors are representatives of SEAS, their respective departments, and a variety of special populations such as transfer students, international students, and student athletes. Throughout their time serving as an ambassador, students gain invaluable leadership experience, communication skills, public speaking, and mentoring skills.

Ambassadors Leadership Team

The Ambassadors leadership team for the 2022-2023 academic year is:

Co-Presidents: Helen & Rubin

Hello! My name is Helen, and I’m from Fairfax, Virginia. I’m a senior biomedical engineering student. I researched in Professor Efimov’s Cardiac Engineering Laboratory on a project creating and testing bioresorbable leadless battery-free pacemakers for neonatal and pediatric electrotherapy. I loved the experience and am now getting involved in Professor Sarkar’s Lab. I am also a member of the University Honors Program and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers as well as a SEAS Together tutor. When I’m not in SEH, I’m weight lifting, having a movie night with friends, or finding new places to eat :).

Computer Science - Senior

Hi everyone! My name is Rubin and I am a senior from the San Francisco Bay Area pursuing a BS in computer science with minors in bioinformatics through the Milken School of Public Health and mathematics through the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences. I currently do machine learning research with Professor Tian Lan in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and serve as a learning assistant for the introductory python class. In summer 2022 I will be interning at Microsoft. Outside of SEAS, I work as a data consultant in the Academic Commons at Gelman Library and as an Upstart Commissioner for the Nashman Center for Community Engagement. I'm especially interested in technology policy and entrepreneurship; in my free time you can probably catch me reading a new book, writing, or attending one of the (many!) cool events on campus. Please reach out with any questions you have about SEAS, GW, DC, or college in general — I'm incredibly excited to get to know you!
