MENTOR

Lab Kang

Lab is from Kent, Washington. He currently works at Praxair as a Chemist. In his position, he performs many analytical tests on medical, industrial, and spec gases to ensure FDA and other quantitative and qualitative standards are met. He graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Chemistry and Biochemistry and minored in Philosophy. He aspires to pursue a Ph.D. in the near future. In his free time, he likes to draw, hang out with friends, listen to music, and hike. He chose to become a Thriving Elements Mentor because he grew up with immigrant parents, and the entire process of applying to and getting through college was very overwhelming. He knows his parents were not much help since they had no idea how to navigate the U.S. educational system. Luckily, he had mentors who guided him through the process as he would not have been able to do it without them.
