Amber Sun

Amber excels at the University of Washington in so many roles. She is a very conscientious student and puts an incredible amount of effort into her classes, while also demonstrating a strong commitment to her job, her role as a mentor to other students, and her responsibilities to her religious community at home. In her job as first a Resident Advisor, then a Resident Advisor in the Engineering Living and Learning Community, and finally an Assistant Resident Director, Amber has consistently shown her commitment to helping her fellow students succeed. This can take many forms – listening and helping a resident facing a challenging situation find the right resources, supporting her colleagues so that their own work is better because of her input, or nurturing student leaders to grow and develop from nervous first-quarter students to confident leaders of the entire Elm Hall community. She also volunteered to serve as a Peer Mentor in the College of Engineering, showing how committed she is to supporting her peers across various roles at UW. In addition to all the amazing things she does at UW, she remains deeply connected to her family and her faith community, serving as a role model for students struggling to figure out their changing identities as they move away from home for the first time. As Amber prepares to graduate this spring, I have no doubt that she will continue to make a significant impact on her community, brightening the lives of those lucky enough to know her.
