Justine Cheung, Bridging Success Program Director
Welcome to ASU Bridging Success! My name is Justine Cheung and this is my fifth year as the program coordinator for the University’s year-round student success program for students with foster care backgrounds. ASU Bridging Success is here to support any student who was involved with the child welfare system using a holistic, trauma informed, coaching model that lets our students prioritize their needs and goals. Watching our students grow, achieve, thrive, and graduate is our greatest joy! They are amazing young people who make coming to work every day an absolute pleasure.
On a more personal level, I have both an undergraduate and graduate degree in social work. I am also very active in research with my areas of interest including both former foster youth in higher education and mental health recovery. My professional career has included working for a non-profit providing peer-support services to people diagnosed with a serious mental illness, conducting research with international refugees and social entrepreneurship, and working in the public health sector.
