Rachel Huang

Chief Student Entrepreneur, Rachel Huang.

Chemical engineering/science student and ex-professional tennis player, Rachel Huang, wants to help the UQ community to transform their ideas into tangible products or solutions that can help society to thrive.

Rachel is the fourth UQ Chief Student Entrepreneur to step into the role, which was established in 2018 to lead and mentor the UQ student community to get involved in UQ's entrepreneurship opportunites, from first-year undergraduates right through to post-graduates and PhD candidates. 

“Being an entrepreneur has shaped me to become who I am today. Students shouldn't be scared to start because there are so many wonderful resources and people at UQ who are always willing to help. All it takes is to believe in the idea, make a start, and keep going.”
