Shane DuShane Du

Wells Fargo Point Scholar
SUNY Upstate Medical University

Shane Du grew up in conservative, rural China. Battling incessant harassment because of her gender expression, she found solace in academics.

Du obtained a BS degree in Chemical Engineering and came to the U.S. with a graduate engineering scholarship. Based on her experiences and that of her LGBT friends, Du is deeply concerned about the lack of access to compassionate health care for LGBT patients and is determined to lead changes. She will attend medical school in the fall and aspires to work as a primary care physician primarily serving LGBT patients.
