President: Erika Sheng
Hello my name is Erika Sheng. I am the President for the Georgia Tech GMMA chapter. I am currently a 4th year at Georgia Tech majoring in Biology on the Pre-PA track. I plan to go to a physicians assistnat program in the future to advance my knowledge in medicine. The reason why I decided to lead the GT chapter this year is because I have grown to have a passion for medical missions through GMMA. My faith and my love for God has strengthened so much through GMMA. As a result, I really hope that the Georgia Tech GMMA chapter as a whole will bring people inside and outside the organization closer to God and will grow people’s passion for medical missions. I am so grateful that God put GMMA into my life and I can’t wait to share this joy with others! Love my GMMA family.
Vice President: Kelly Yi
Treasurer: Michael Pang
Hey! My name is Michael Pang and I am the treasurer for the Georgia Tech GMMA chapter. I am currently a 4th year biomedical engineering student at Georgia Tech, hoping to go to medical school after college. As treasurer, I want to ensure our record keeping is held to a high standard, and that we are able to raise enough funds to accomodate those that want to go on missions. While Georgia Tech GMMA is a relatively new chapter, I have a feeling that God will do great things through this ministry. Having faith will keep our chapter strong!
Secretary: Juhee Shim
External Missions Coordinator: Arlo Shen
Hello my name is Arlo Shen. I am a 4th year studying Aerospace Engineering, and I am the Missions Coordinator. I am not on a Pre-Health track nor do I plan on pursuing a field in medicine, but I have a passion for Global Missions and seeing how God can move in the lives of people everywhere in the world. My vision for this chapter is for our members to recognize that God is eager to use us for what He has planned regardless of who we are and where we’re at. I also hope that this GMMA chapters can be a community that really exemplifies a family and that the relationships we build with God and one another are intentional and intimate. My goal as Missions Coordinaor is to improve communication between our members to promote efficiency in what we do and better foster a community. I am excited to see how God will use GMMA to accomplish His kingdom work!
Timothy Liu: Internal Missions Coordinator
Hello my name is Timothy Liu, a second year Biomedical Engineering student at Georgia Tech. I am on the pre-med path in hopes of one day pursuing a career in medicine. Currently, I am conducting research at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the Influenza A virus as well as training to become a medical scribe at Emory University Hospital. I hope that God continues to guide and bless our GMMA Chapter and that he continues to meet us where we are. Through fellowship, I hope our Chapter continues to grow in our faith and love for God together.
