About

Hi there! My name is Vivian Tan and my Polygence project is on environmental initiatives in improving the well-being of impoverished individuals. I chose to work on this project to better understand the environment's role in maintaining positive mental and physical health. After my project is complete, I would love to continue finding ways to enhance the lives of suffering communities without the expense of the environment.
