“Good Morning America” Honors UCLA Engineering Grad for Community Leadership
“Good Morning America,” an ABC television program, pays tribute to inspiring figures who have enriched the community and were nominated by API elected officials, business leaders, celebrities, intellectuals, entrepreneurs and athletes.
According to a statement issued by the show: “Most of the nominations on the list are rising stars on the cusp of becoming household names, whose influence, we believe, will become monumental.”
Tse was nominated by Ki Hong Lee, a Korean American actor who is best known for his roles in the Maze Runner films and in the Netflix series, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”
Now a spacecraft thermal engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, in Pasadena, California, Tse co-founded a shelter service, Students 4 Students, while at UCLA to support homeless college students. He continues to stay involved in the nonprofit organization serving some of the nearly 60,000 students around the country in need of a place to stay.
Tse was also the recipient of the 2018 Eudaimonia Award from the Semel Healthy Campus Initiative Center at UCLA honoring his dedication and effort to improving the lives of students and others.
