Amy Duong

Content Developer


Amy is entering her 4th year at Drexel University, studying Business Analytics and Management Information Systems. Amy recently completed an Information Management co-op with Brandywine Global Investment Management where she assisted in data governance and system restructuring efforts. This fall, she will be studying abroad at Aston University in Birmingham, England with a focus on business analytics. This past summer, Amy joined Rise First as their Strategic Partnerships intern and moving forward, she will continue her involvement with Rise First as a Content Developer.

As a FGLI student and daughter of Vietnamese immigrants, Amy has acknowledged and admired how hard her parents worked to provide for her and her 4 brothers. Education has been a top priority for Amy because of the vast opportunities and growth that it has given her. When Amy encountered Rise First, she was glad to be able to share her experiences as a FGLI student with others who have been through similar barriers. Amy resonates with Rise First’s mission to leverage technology to fill the achievement gap within the broader FGLI community. Amy is proud to be working with Rise First as they curate resources, find new opportunities, and break barriers.
