Charlene Manipon

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 senior 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 President this year, since GMMA has united my love to serve through missions and the health field. I can’t wait to meet everyone!”

Alicia Zhu

Vice President
Major: Global Public Health & Biology
Hometown: Fremont, CA
Fun Fact: I can always crack my pinky finger!

“Hello! I’m Alicia, a junior at NYU. I am passionate about my faith and interested in pursuing medicine in the future. I am super excited to serve as the VP for NYC GMMA this year! I can’t wait to see how God will work and build up this family with you guys! I love meeting new people, so feel free to text me. See you during meetings 🙂”

Joseph Lee

Major: Global Public Health & Biology
Hometown: Clarksville, MD
Fun Fact: I played varsity baseball 

“hi I’m Joseph and treasurer. I’m a junior studying global public health and biology on the premed track. I love the outdoors so walking around NYC has given me a healthy dose of sunlight. My legs may be fried, but I’ll always down to do anything anywhere from broadway plays to sports. If I’m not suffering from studying, you can find me at the gym, a new restaurant, or watching a show on my computer!”


Sydney Paek

Major: Biology
Hometown: Louisville, KY
Fun Fact: I could probably guess your mbti/enneagram 😛

“Hey I’m Sydney, and I’m a Super Junior at NYU on the pre-dental track. I would say I’m Not Shy but I am-jk reach out because Me Gustas Tu. But tbh I don’t listen to that much kpop. Sorry. TT.”

Will Kwon

Missions Coordinator
Major: Nutrition & Dietetics
Hometown: Fort Lee, NJ
Fun Fact: I have a sister 10 years younger than me.

“Hi, I’m Will and I’m a senior 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 Missions Coordinator and being able to grow with God and you guys and get to know everyone more!”


Serena Lau

Public Relations
Major: Global Public Health & Nutrition and Dietetics
Hometown: Staten Island, NY
Fun Fact: I was bitten by a kangaroo in Australia (but didn’t inherit any superpowers from the incident).

“Hi there! My name is Serena and I am a junior at NYU. I am so excited to see how the Lord is going to move through GMMA this upcoming year! Cannot wait to serve alongside with you and see the gospel change people’s lives. Looking forward to meeting everyone!”
