First Year and Pre-Major Program (FYPP) - ATP

2016-2017 ATP Mentors

At the beginning of the 2016-2017 academic year, the ATP program introduced a peer mentor curriculum that matched current ATP cohort members with previous ATP students and other FYPP/SSC student-staff. We would like to give special thanks to these mentors who go above and beyond to make sure our students are set up for personal and professional success at UW Bothell.


Antony Ahmed

What's up ya'll! My name is Antony Ahmed and I am a fourth year majoring in Media and Communications. I have experience in the struggle of getting on your feet when you first enter college so I'm hoping to offer you insight as to how to better the experience overall. A couple things about me is that I love video games, eating, and dancing. I balance a very strict work, school, and dance schedule that helps me keep organized. If you need anything at all please feel free to hit me up!


Christian Duarte Martinez

My name is Christian Duarte Martinez.  I plan on majoring in business and also plan to do something with sales in the future. What I like about mentoring is getting to know new students and making friends. I like to make sure giving advise to students so they don't do bad in their education. It's a very good and fun experience. It makes me see the position I was in when I first came into college. 


Justin Ferrer

UWB was the only college who accepted me. I was rejected by WSU. My favorite part of mentoring is being able to try to motivate the mentees; having them know they have someone there for them. Intended BS Major - Biochemistry. Plan to receive my doctoral degree in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. Outgoing & Social, Funny, and Positive Personality. Favorite Classes: Math. What I do outside of school: workout, hang out with friends, and dress nice for professional photos.


Justin Han

Hi! My name is Justin C. Han, I am currently a senior expected to graduate this June. My major is Media and Communication Studies. I moved to the United States of America when I was two years old with my mother and father. Whom reside in Kent with my two younger brothers. One day they too hope to follow my footstep and possibly attend the University of Washington Bothell. My favorite color is black, and I absolutely love eating Asian cuisine and drinking bubble tea. My all time favorite is Mango snow bubble with mango jelly! In my free time, I love to enjoy a good book and explore cafes in the Greater Seattle Area. Upon graduation, I hope to work in a technology-based company as a Human Resource Generalist. 


John Kamau

My name is John, I am a Kenyan-American and also an only child. Currently, i am on my second year of Uni. My interest are in music and photography. My photography skills are not yet on a professional level but i am far from an amateur. My goals are to one day finish school with an MBA and get into real estate development in Africa.


Stephanie Le

I came to UWB because I was privileged enough to be admitted into the ATP program. I am honored to be able to say that I mentor students in the ATP program now and am able to give back to the program that helped me get into college. My favorite part about mentoring is that I have created 39 new friendships. The most important thing to me is that I’m their friend and I’m grateful for that opportunity. As a second year student, my goal is to be accepted in the School of Business where I most likely will be studying Entrepreneurship. One day I hope to own my own international cosmetic line. For now, while I’m still young and in college, I want to absorb all the opportunities that are given to me in order to grow for the future.


George Sumalbag

Hello! My Name is George Nathan Sumalbag Jr, but most people call me Big George or Georgie. I recently graduated the University of Washington with a double major in Law Economics and Public Policy, and Community Psychology. My goals in life are to work for justice, to make positive social change, and to make the world a happier place. I love anything to do with the outdoors, including paddle boarding, hiking, long boarding, and camping, just to name a few. Being a part of the Academic Transition program has given me the opportunity to learn about incoming student’s identity and facilitate the success of their beginning here at the University. This program has provided me a greater understanding of the diversity and identity that exist on our campus.
