Van Thien Pham (BEng ’23) and Essete Tesfaye (BA ’23) are finalists for the first global cohort of McCall MacBain Scholars at McGill University.
Tesfaye, a fourth-year global health student at York, is a youth liaison for a grassroots collective that provides mental health resources to Ethiopian and Eritrean youth in Toronto. “I am excited to have the chance to interview for such a fantastic opportunity,” said Tesfaye.
Pham, a student at York’s Lassonde School of Engineering, contributed to the student community as vice-president of finance of the Engineers Without Borders university chapter. He’s a member of two engineering student society committees and a student orientation executive. “The Lassonde community has always opened doors and given me many opportunities to explore, which sharpens who I am today,” said Pham.
