Tran Nguyen-Phuong is a sophomore at Tulane University, studying Psychology and Economics with a minor in Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship. While she is originally from a small, seaside village in Vietnam, Nguyen-Phuong grew up in New Orleans and is proud to call the Crescent City her home. Her dedication to the city and the well-being of its people led her to discover Design Thinking with hopes of helping develop more sustainable, human-centered solutions to better her community.

The Taylor Center’s mission to “create a more just and equitable world” deeply resonates with her and aligns with her vision for the future. As a Design Thinking fellow, Nguyen-Phuong works to share the language of Design Thinking with her peers and the members of her community through the facilitation of various workshops and open dialogues. With her passions for equity, diversity and inclusion, she aspires to become an agent of change on Tulane’s campus and in the greater New Orleans community.

On-campus, Nguyen-Phuong is the Community Outreach Director for Your CollegeFit, the Secretary of Tulane University Vietnamese Association (TUVA), a group leader for Girls in STEM at Tulane (GiST), an O Peer Mentor, a Newcomb Big, and a Wave Leader for New Student Orientation. While she wears many different hats within these different programs and organizations, Nguyen-Phuong holds similar objectives throughout all of her positions: to be a resource and pillar of support for students and to cultivate community.
