“What you are looking for is already in you. Do not try to become something else.”- Thich Nhat Hanh
Joining her freshman year of highschool, HOSA-Future Health Professionals has gifted Elaine with a multitude of lessons, experiences, and lifelong friendships. This organization allows her to not only cultivate her passions, but also to freely embrace her individuality. Surrounded by a family that collectively strives to create a better, healthier tomorrow, Elaine can confidently call HOSA-Future Health Professionals ‘home’. With that, she is humbled to serve Minnesota HOSA as President-Elect for the 2023-24 year.
As a Junior from Blaine High School, Elaine aspires to pursue a career in neuropsychology, aiming to treat and destigmatize mental illness in a time when it is absolutely vital for our voices to be heard. Elaine strives to amplify the voices of the unsung and silenced in order to shed light on the multifaceted adversities our communities endure everyday. She believes that with compassion, diligence, and an open mind we can bring forth a stronger, healthier, kinder tomorrow. Outside of HOSA, Elaine can be found taking a stroll around the lake, analyzing the latest fashion cycles, or listening to the La La Land soundtrack (solely Mia and Sebastian’s Theme.) She is a novice poet who enjoys sharing her writing most Saturdays with the Blaine Speech team. Other weekends, she spends time with her sangha–GDPTTA, having been a member since 2012. With endless gratitude, Elaine looks forward to continuing serving HOSA and witnessing what we Dare to Create this year.
She is excited and ready to stand alongside Minnesota HOSA as we foster positive change, overcome adversity, and mold the health of tomorrow.
