The Official Husky Ambassador Blogs

Our Husky Ambassadors are undergraduate student leaders who provide valuable and diverse perspectives about life at Northeastern through campus tours, welcome events, blogs, and more. Check out some of their student blogs to experience the University through the eyes of a current student.

Colette Biro

Math & Biology

Hi, my name is Colette and I'm a fourth year senior math and biology major, pre-med track. I enjoy running, biking, drinking coffee, and laying in my hammock! Ask me your questions!


Victoire Cointy

Communication Studies & International Affairs

Hey there! My name’s Victoire — pronounced Vik-twar, in case you’re scratching your head — and I’m a second-year Communication Studies major and International Affairs minor at Northeastern. I’m originally from France, but I’ve moved a total of twelve times in my lifetime, and lived in seven different countries across three continents. I’m currently getting ready for my first co-op, which I’ll most likely be doing in Boston. In my spare time, I give tours for Husky Ambassadors, work as a Global Student Mentor over at the Office of Global Services and I’m trying every type of food I can get my hands on. Feel free to check out my student blog to hear more about my Northeastern journey!


Christina Chun


Hello everyone! My name is Christina Chun and I am a third year pharmacy major. I come all the way from Fullerton, California and coming here to Northeastern has been nothing short of amazing. Feel free to leave any questions on my blog and follow along to see what happens when Boba meets Bubble! ;)


Deirdre Dunham

Bioengineering & Computer Science Minor

My name is Deirdre and I’m a second year at Northeastern currently on Co-op at Corindus Vascular Robotics working on embedded software research and development. When on campus, I’m a member of the Northeastern University Symphony Orchestra, the Biomedical Engineering Society, and Northeastern University Association of Gaming Enthusiasts. I also participate in research, in which I work in a war bunker helping robot lobsters with their plans for world domination. I have a passion for grading papers and am a TA for Engineering Design. Other passions include watching competitive eating, watching cat videos, and making bad jokes. If you have any questions about college or life in general, give me a shout!


Alexis Hester


Hi, everyone! My name is Alexis, and I'm a third year Chemistry major on the pre-med track. I'm currently on co-op at a DNA sequencing lab, but in my free time I'm involved with the American Chemical Society, Agape Christian Fellowship, and a few of the theater groups on campus. If that sounds interesting, stop by and leave a message!


Justin Hewitt

Industrial Engineering & Engineering Managment

Justin, also know as JHewAtNEU, is a fourth year junior in the B.S./M.S. Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management program. Passionate about all things Northeastern, you might recognize him from appearances in NUStage, Husky Ambassador, Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers, the Honors Program, and a red polo synonymous with Orientation Leaders. Originally from Buffalo, NY, he can be found running around Boston in every type of weather condition imaginable, climbing Harvard Stadium steps with November Project, and in search of great donuts and brunch food.


Katie Hudson


Katie is a fifth year marine biology major at Northeastern. She is looking forward to sharing her wide variety of experiences at Northeastern with prospective students while she is on co-op at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences.


Deborah Madueke

Economics and Business Administration

Hi! My name is Debbie Madueke. I am a sophomore at Northeastern University majoring in Economics and Finance. I love to travel and have recently found an interest in cooking so stay tuned for stories and delicious recipes. Feel free to ask me anything.


Allison Ngan


Hi! My name is Allison and I’m a fifth year pharmacy major at Northeastern. I’m originally from San Francisco, CA (yes, I had to adjust to the huge difference in climate) but I’m still here and loving every second of it! I’m a lover of Japanese animation and related media and when I’m not studying you can find me giving tours to the lovely visitors of campus. I hope to share a number of different experiences and insights about Northeastern-there’s a lot of different opportunities awaiting here!


Brandon Yip


I'm a third year nursing major currently on co-op at MGH on Ellison 11: Cardiac Interventional Unit. Come along as I live life to the fullest through continuous learning.
