Sharon Chen

Major: Nursing
Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
Fun Fact: I’m not sure if this is fun, but I find it pretty crazy how I suffered a mild concussion once because some girl sat on my face during a basketball game.
“Hi guys! I’m Sharon, and I’m currently pursuing Nursing at Hunter College. I knew medical school was not for me haha, but I still wanted to do something along the lines of healthcare… so nursing it was! I’m pretty excited to serve as President for NYC GMMA this year, and I cant wait to see how God will use this chapter to further His kingdom. If you ever want to have a chat about life or anything, don’t be afraid to reach out! ☺️” 

Noel Chan

Vice President
Major: Nursing
Hometown: Long Island, NY
Fun Fact: I climbed one of the tallest mountains in Acadia National Park, Maine this summer.
“Hi everyone, my name is Noel and I’m currently a senior pursuing nursing at Adelphi University. I love devoting my time to help others and am excited to serve as Vice President for NYU/NYC GMMA this year. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for our chapter as we continue to reach out to others!”

Will Kwon

Major: Nutrition & Dietetics
Hometown: Fort Lee, NJ
Fun Fact: I have more than 10 white sneakers.

“Hi, I’m Will and I’m a junior at NYU hopefully pursuing a career in the medical field. Before hearing about GMMA, I never thought that two major aspects of my life — my faith and my career aspiration — would ever intersect in one community like this. So I’m excited to have the chance to serve here as Treasurer and being able to grow with God and you guys and get to know everyone more!”

I can’t wait to see how God will work and build up this club with you guys! I love meeting new people, so feel free to text me. See you during meetings 🙂”

Charlene Manipon

Missions Coordinator
Major: Biochemistry
Hometown: New City, NY
Fun Fact: In high school, I broke my front row of teeth while playing basketball, so I guess that explains why I’m not pursuing dentistry lol.
“Hello! I’m Charlene, and I’m currently a junior on the premed track at NYU. It’s been quite a journey, but I know that if God has brought me this far, he will continue to be faithful. I’m so excited to serve as Missions Coordinator this year, since GMMA has united my love to serve through missions and the health field. I can’t wait to meet everyone!”


Sydney Paek

Public Relations
Major: Biology
Hometown: Louisville, KY
Fun Fact: I like writing poems in my notes app.
“Hi, I’m Sydney, and I’m a sophomore at NYU on the pre-dental track. I’m excited to be serving as PR for NYC GMMA, and can’t wait to get to know more of those who are just as passionate about serving as we are! I look forward to seeing new faces, so please reach out anytime!”
