Editor’s Note: Spotlight Students are nominated by staff and faculty at WSU Spokane and were recognized during commencement for their dedication, commitment, sacrifice and/or ability to overcome great odds to succeed as a student. They are selected by a committee ahead of commencement. WSU Spokane will feature a Spotlight Student each day through May 13.
Angel Li wasted no time becoming involved with her university.
As a pre-nursing student in Pullman, Li was the president of the Pre-Nursing Club, manager of the International Center Program, and a team leader for the WSU Asian Pacific American Student Coalition.
Once she entered her nursing studies at WSU Spokane, Li’s involvement grew. She was a College of Nursing Volunteer Research Assistant and had a poster presentation at the Inland Northwest Research Symposium on campus in 2015.
Li joined the Washington State Nurses Association at Nurse Legislation Day. She volunteered at immunization clinics at Spokane schools and was a volunteer at the Corbin Senior Center Health Fair.
“She is already a world changer and will go forth and do wonderful things for the health of our nation,” her nominator wrote.
Li gained great work experience from her time at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in 2015, as well as when she was an Injury Prevention Intern at Miller Children’s and Women’s Hospital in Long Beach, CA.
“With the advancements in the field of nursing, I strive to be an active leader in my community and an avid participant in research,” Li said. “I am also passionate about continuous education and will obtain my doctorate degree in the future.”
