Hannah Truong, featured in Scholarship America’s 2013 Annual Report, had an amazing first year at Yale:
– She discovered an unexpected love of science during her first semester, and now is planning to focus her studies on science/pre-med.
– She received funding to do research at the Yale School of Medicine this past summer on the topic of apoptosis (cell death) and stem cells.
– She got involved in many campus activities, including cheerleading, student council, the Vietnamese Student Association, the Chinese American Student Association, dance team, a Christian student group and Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority.
– She applied for and received admittance to the Leadership Education and Development Year One Class, a lecture-, workshop-, and project-based program that cultivates leadership skills in select Yale students though a four-year process.
Hannah says, “Reflecting on this past year, it is both terrifying and exciting to see how fast it flew by. It is astounding to see how much I have grown as both a student and as a person over the span of a few months.
"Although it is one of the hardest things I have ever done, college is so much fun and I could not imagine myself anywhere other than Yale. Thank you so much for being a part of my journey thus far, and I cannot wait to share where I am headed next!”next page
