Felipe Gomes
BACK
NYU student
 

Felipe Gomes is a junior in Liberal Studies, double-majoring in Global Liberal Studies and Neuroscience, and minoring in Italian. Felipe spent his first year away at NYU Florence where he studied classics, Italian culture and fell in love with everything about Italy and its people. Throughout his time in Florence, Felipe became fascinated by culture and how it interacts and changes affecting those around it. Born in Brazil, but raised in a conservative suburb of Orlando, Florida Felipe is very passionate about his identity and wants to bring the conversation about all different types of identity to NYU as he knows how difficult it can be to blend two very different cultures together. At NYU Felipe is the Vice President of Global Liberal Studies on the Liberal Studies Student Council, serving as a student leader assisting incoming first-year students transition to their new life at NYU and New York City. Mental health is very near to Felipe’s heart, and interned with the First Lady of New York at City Hall in Spring 2017 assisting her and learning more about all the new policy implementations that are being made throughout New York City to aid those with mental illnesses and promote mental health awareness. Felipe’s passions are for performing, human rights activism, and multiculturalism in education and corporations. Felipe hopes his passion for human rights and coexistence of all differences will one day impact the world for the better.
