Vivian Liu
Emory University

Vivian is an environmental science major and quantitative science minor at Emory University. Growing up in a low-income, mostly Asian neighborhood in New York City, they saw how city planning and public policies turned supermarkets into luxury hotels and parking lots, furthering environmental, racial, and economic disparities. They worked on local political campaigns and urban development initiatives in NYC and Atlanta, Georgia to empower and mobilize low-income, BIPOC communities through multilingual conversations about environmental and political issues. On campus, they are the co-president of Emory APIDAA, an Asian political advocacy organization, CBSC Fellow, and residential advisor. Vivian aspires to work with stakeholders across multiple sectors to create sustainable policies and cities.
