- Bio: Hey everyone. My name is Tue Ho (pronounced "Tway"). I was born in Vietnam but immigrated over straight to Philly. I grew up playing curveball, half ball, and all sorts of street hockey here in South Philly. My father was a Buddhist monk and so, in a way, I'm a bit of a preachers' kid. I enjoy reading non-fiction, going on bike rides, and sleeping while trying to meditate. I studied history at Temple, Education at Penn, and now am studying Law at Rutgers. Prior to law school, I was a special ed teacher in Kensington, an ESL teacher in Vietnam, and a greeter at Disney World. I'm very concerned about displacement and have been involved in different housing advocacy groups in Philadelphia. I hope to find a way to hold city planners and private developers accountable for creating and maintaining affordable housing. I'm also passionate about educational equity and hope to one day provide legal services to students and their communities. During my 1L summer, I interned for the ACLU in Pennsylvania. During the 2L spring semester, I interned at the Philadelphia Human Relations Commission reviewing discrimination claims in housing, employment, and public accommodations. Finally, I interned at Amistad Law Project, a Movement Lawyering and Abolition advocacy organization during my 2L summer. Recently, I've been learning a lot about Medical-Legal Partnerships as an avenue to address social determinants of health, in order to support low-income communities towards positive health outcomes.
