HTF Cohort 1
Quan immigrated to the United States from Vietnam and was the first member of his family to attend college. For his undergraduate degree, Quan concentrated in Human Evolutionary Biology with the intention of pursuing a career in medicine. However, through his work with the Boston Refugee Youth Enrichment (BRYE) program—where he taught and tutored immigrant and refugee children from all around the world—he fell in love with teaching.
Quan is currently teaching 8th grade physical science and 9th grade biology at Coliseum College Prep Academy in Oakland, CA.
