College Aides

Hung Ho (Head College Aide) is a senior originally from Saigon, Vietnam, but has spent most of his life in the wonderful cities of Minneapolis/St.Paul, Minnesota. He hopes to double major in Applied Mathematics and Economics. On campus, Hung is involved as the photographer of the Yale Precision Marching Band, the treasurer of the Benjamin Franklin College Council, the secretary of the Vietnamese Students Association, and a volunteer tax preparer for New Haven residents through VITA. Outside of coursework and Yale activities, Hung is an avid sports fan, a lover of food, and an exerciser of sorts. Christian Fernandez

Emma Desrochers is a junior from a small town in the state of Maine hoping to double major in mechanical engineering and environmental studies. During the school year she spends most of her time doing p-sets and working multiple jobs. Any free time she has is spent backpacking somewhere in the wilderness. She is an avid traveler having gone to Nepal, Peru, Ecuador, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Singapore for solo trips. Working in the environmental conservation field has been her passion, each summer working for a nonprofit internationally. This summer she was working with coral propagation in Thailand and her first-year summer was spent in the Amazon rainforest studying reforestation techniques and traditional ethnobotany. She is always looking for the next exciting adventure, whether it is scuba-diving to shipwrecks or hiking into the unknown, she’s always excited to try something new.

Abigail Eswarakumar is a Junior from the oh-sor-far away city of New Haven. Clearly a homebody, she wants to become a local pediatrician and soccer mom. In the meantime, she studies the History of Science, Medicine, and Public Health, reads way too much poetry, and spends an absurd amount of time chatting in the dining hall. During nice weather you can always catch her reading in the courtyards or listening to music- feel free to join and ask her any questions about BF!

Hana Galijašević is a sophomore planning to major in Computer Science (or CS/Math?) with a minor-like focus on Linguistics. She is a proudly-international student from Bosnia and Herzegovina, with interests in learning languages (to the point of being conversational), random educational videos (which she only watches, but gladly recaps), math and physics (casually), and graphic design and photo-editing (recreationally). Hana has been named “The Mom Friend” by six unrelated friend groups across three continents. In her free time, you can find her napping, seeking out people to have meals with (you’re invited!), or making and drinking traditional Bosnian coffee.

Sasha Lee is a junior studying sociology from Warner Robins, Georgia. You can probably find her cooking in the buttery as the buttery manager, thrift shopping at Savers, DJ’ing for WYBCx, or walking the Canal trail. She is also involved as a public school intern at Metropolitan Business Academy in downtown New Haven. 

Shannon Linder is an English major from San Diego, California. She is especially interested in becoming a human rights lawyer, but can also see herself as a novelist or educator. On campus, Shannon writes and edits for Yale’s chapter of Her Campus, serves as treasurer and co-leader for a middle school Girl Scout troop with Campus Girl Scouts, and volunteers with the Yale Undergraduate Legal Aid Association. When she’s not reading Shakespeare or writing free verse poetry, you’ll find her dancing with Danceworks or singing karaoke with friends. If you ask her which coffee shop in New Haven has the best espresso, she has opinions.

Hudson Patterson is a sophomore from Seattle, Washington. Right now, he is interested in pursuing a career as a lawyer, but, as he likes to remind everyone, he’s not one thousand percent sure yet! Hudson is double majoring in Psychology and Spanish. He is also involved with WYBCx, Yale’s student-run online radio station, on which he has a show all about the latest celebrity controversies! On campus, he is also very passionate about and involved with groups dedicated to legal aid. His hobbies include reading, binging TV shows, and decorating. And of course, his guilty pleasure is nintendo video games! When a new Zelda, Mario, or Pokémon game comes out, he will not leave the couch for approximately 24 hours unless forcibly removed — consider yourself warned!
