“Have courage and be kind, and nothing else, be passionately curious.”

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Tran volunteers at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science in the Expedition Health exhibit and at the Denver Boys and Girls Club. She has also tutored many students at her school in the subjects of math, physics, and Spanish.

WHY IS COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT IMPORTANT?

“Community Involvement is important because by helping people, I am able to give back to my community and imprint the world in some way, no matter how small or large the scale.”

IF I COULD IMPROVE THE WORLD I WOULD…

“I would teach the importance of kindness in order to better the world and create a more equal place for all.”
