Tram-Anh Nguyen has volunteered with the Massachusetts Youth Leadership Conference since June 2016, serving as a Senior Facilitator at the 2016 and 2017 MassSTAR conferences and was on the Operations team in 2018 and 2019.
Tram-Anh attended Salve Regina University in Newport, RI and graduated with a BA in Administration of Justice in 2013 and an MS in Administration of Justice and Homeland Security in 2014. During her summer breaks, she was a Residential Administrator at Project Contemporary Competitiveness, a six-week residential overnight advanced studies program for incoming high school freshmen and sophomores at Stonehill College (formerly at Bridgewater State University). It was at PCC, working with 1700 students over the course of six years, where she discovered her passion for working with high school students and entered the field of education post-graduation. From August 2014 to June 2016, Tram-Anh served with City Year Boston, a national AmeriCorps nonprofit that provides students with differentiated classroom support and school-wide initiatives to help them stay on the right track to graduate high school on time.
Currently, Tram-Anh is the Career Connections Manager at Bottom Line, a national non-profit organization that supports over 3400 first-generation students from low-income backgrounds get in to college, graduate, and go far in life. She helps college students move towards personal and professional success through gaining industry-specific knowledge, professional relationships, and meaningful work experiences. Before this role, she was a College Access Counselor and provided one-on-one mentoring students throughout the college application and financial aid processes in the greater Boston area. As a first-generation college student herself, Tram-Anh saw the value and need to support students in navigating their ways through the often complicated and challenging processes to access a college education.
