Amanda Han is a Stanford 2020 graduate and former member of the Women’s Fencing team. As an ACE in China 2017 alum, Han reflects on ACE’s influence five years later and how the experience impacted her pursuit of a career in public service. Currently working at a community health center in East Palo Alto, she also shares about what it has been like to work in this environment during the pandemic.
What are you doing now? How did ACE influence your career?
I am currently doing a fellowship at a community health center in East Palo Alto, CA (Ravenswood Family Health Center). At our clinic, we primarily serve low-income individuals of diverse backgrounds by providing culturally sensitive, integrated healthcare.
“ACE helped me realized that I wanted to go into a field of public service.”

Since I began this fellowship in the midst of the pandemic, much of my work has centered around COVID. Right now, we are quickly rolling out vaccines to our community, which has had the highest COVID rates in the Bay Area.
