Huyen Pham, MA ’14, humanities
Huyen Pham is working in a field she never expected to love. She is the program assistant for SFU’s Institute for the Humanities, an organization that engages students, faculty and the community on contemporary issues ranging from Arab art activism to the Greek economic crisis.
Pham says: “In my role with the institute, I get to help the public access the humanities and experience that same wonder I had when I first discovered this discipline. When people come to events and they say, 'Oh I thought this would be purely academic, but it was very informative and relevant to current issues,' I feel great.”
