Grace Fang '23 Student Wellness Ambassador
Grace Fang (she/her), Student Wellness Ambassador, is an International Relations and Political Science major in the Class of 2023. She also serves as the treasurer for the BHEs (Balance Health Educators), the treasurer for SAW (Students for an Accessible Wellesley), and an opinions editor for the Wellesley News.
"Wellness is very important to me and I'm so excited to be working as a student ambassador. I strongly believe in wellness through an anti-diet culture and anticapitalist lens, taking political and social contexts into account. I'm passionate about accessibility, decolonizing the concept of health and nutrition, forming healthy relationships, and sleeping for 9 hours. In my spare time I like to make jewelry, alter vintage clothes, read fiction, watch a lot of horror movies, and powerlift."
