Anou Vang

Areas of Interest:



Anou Vang is a first-generation Hmong American who was born and raised in the Central Valley. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Asian American Studies at Fresno State. Through her experiences serving underserved communities, she has found her passion for helping individuals learn more about mental health. During her time at UCLA, she hopes to collaborate with Southeast Asian American communities to see how their upbringing, culture, and education affect their views on mental health and their likelihood to reach out during a crisis. She is especially interested in addressing the gap in research and literature for Hmong Americans in the United States. In the future, Anou would like to return to a higher education institution to help support marginalized communities thrive at their campus. She is a proud Gryffindor who enjoys the outdoors, painting, baking, and listening to Studio Ghibli Lofi.
