My name is Katie Wong, and I am a rising senior at Dougherty Valley High School in San Ramon, California. After attending YLC in my freshmen summer, I have been actively involved in Team HBV as a member in an outreach committee, officer in my school chapter, and resources chair on HSAB! Besides Team HBV, I am passionate about STEM and have compiled a wide range of chemistry puns. In my free time, I also enjoy watching comedic shows, but lately I’ve been spending a fair amount of time on random cooking videos that pop up on Facebook I look forward to a great year with the new High School Board!
Lillian is a senior at Northwood High School and is excited to work with the High School Advisory Board and Team HBV members this year. She joined the Jade Campaign after attending YLC her freshmen year and has enjoyed serving in various outreach committees ever since. In addition to Team HBV, Lillian loves anything related to biology and spends her free time playing music, volunteering, and traveling with friends and family. She looks forward to working with everyone and hopes to broaden the reach of Team HBV by unifying chapters through fun events and promoting more international outreach!
