Student Scholar Spotlight

Lena Nguyen

IUPUI Junior, ServiceCorps Scholar

Lena Nguyen is an IUPUI Junior studying Chemistry in the School of Science.

Her favorite experience as a SHJ Scholar:
“I didn't know what to expect when I first joined SHJ, but it has been such a great experience! All the coordinators are so energized and welcoming. The other scholars who have been in the program longer are also very welcoming and excited for SHJ this school year. The welcoming people and energizing environment of SHJ is what I will always remember from this experience.”

Her favorite service project:

“One of my favorite service projects was being able to work at the Burmese Refugee gardens. The students and I had the opportunity to clean up the garden and take care of the garden of growing fruits and vegetables that were planted for the Burmese Refugees. Although we couldn't help those in need personally, it was nice to know that we could help indirectly and really make a difference!”
