Posse Scholar: Han Truong
By AMANDA DE MORAES and EMMA CEPLINSKAS As senior year comes closer to an end, Han Truong’s college experience is nearing. However, her worries about where she wants to attend have vanished. Through the Posse Foundation, Truong will be attending Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania. Though her major is undecided, Truong is “leaning towards Posse STEM programs,” she mentioned. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math, which are programs that Bryn Mawr College supports. In fact, Bryn Mawr is the only school in Posse Boston that has a STEM program right now, but the program is expanding across the country at the other Posse sites. Similar to Malden High School, Bryn Mawr has much diversity among its student body, which was one of the main attributes of the college that attracted Truong, along with the STEM programs. She was also drawn to its “great support for women empowerment,” expressed Truong. Truong revealed that she enjoyed the application process because both Posse and Bryn Mawr “took the time to learn about applicants in person through three rounds of interviews.” Because of this, she is more confident of her abilities as a student. At Bryn Mawr, Truong hopes “to learn, grow and if possible, inspire.” Bryn Mawr is gaining a promising student who will be sure to rise to the occasion of higher education.
