Nội dung bài viết
For the first generation of graduates at PennSchool, the journey of learning and improving skills during their high school years in the American International Program has helped them to be proactive and confidently conquer the first steps in university.
As one of the spirited and active girls who graduated from Class 2022, Tran Le Thoai Nhien consistently asserted her capabilities and talents by actively participating in various activities and events throughout her time at PennSchool.
Being the valedictorian of Class 2022, Thoai Nhien consistently demonstrated herself through outstanding academic achievements, with a SAT score of 1500/1600, 5/5 in AP Macroeconomics, and 5/5 in AP Calculus AB. Thoai Nhien also actively engaged in school activities and achieved numerous awards in significant competitions both domestically and internationally. With these remarkable achievements, Thoai Nhien achieved impressive scholarships at many prestigious universities:
– Stevens Institute of Technology (Global Scholarship – $32,000/year)
– DePauw University (Scholarship of $46,500/year)
– Indiana University (Hoosier Scholarship – $3,000/year)
– Swinburne University of Technology Vietnam (Scholarship of Academic Excellence – 50%)
– Vietnamese-German University (Scholarship – 100%)
The period of study at PennSchool not only left this young girl with beautiful memories but also equipped her with the best resources for a successful transition into university life.
“The transition from High School to University was pretty smooth for me because, first of all, I’ve had many years of studying in an international environment program and have been trained in important skills when going to University, such as research and term papers. Being exposed to different cultures and international perspectives allows me to interact with international students from different countries and cultures at the University.
It can be said that the research skills that I acquired during the ADP program supported me a lot during my research papers at the University, including utilizing reference sources or other knowledge in the writing process.”
These were Thoai Nhien’s thoughts on the valuable skills she acquired right from her days at PennSchool.
Currently, Thoai Nhien has just completed her first year at Stevens Institute of Technology, majoring in Computer Science.
Three years, a long journey, has made PennSchool proud of the talented generations who have graduated, matured, and now have become remarkable individuals making significant impacts on their communities and the surrounding world. The journey at PennSchool was a precious period for these students to shape their characters, discover their passions, and prepare themselves for the challenges of life.
Let’s listen to the delightful stories shared by our lovely girl – Thoai Nhien, about her memories and experiences during her time at PennSchool, as well as her future plans.
