Joy Chiu

2018 Summer Intern

Originally from Taiwan, Joy Chiu is a rising junior at Washington University in St. Louis majoring in Psychology with a minor in Anthropology. Joy gradually discovered her passion for mental health advocacy after seeing the mental health struggles of close family and friends. That exposure, combined with her experience in two diverse cultures, spurred her interest in the social determinants of health as well as the intersection of culture and health. On campus, she is involved in Uncle Joe’s Peer Counseling, Natural Ties, Taiwanese Student Organization, and the Diabolo Club. An aspiring occupational therapist, Joy hopes to apply the knowledge she gains this summer to provide holistic, client-centered, and culturally competent care.
