“Volunteering has been one of my greatest passions since I’ve moved to the United States, a place where volunteerism is greatly valued and widespread and where all volunteers share the enthusiasm and passion to help others in their communities selflessly. . . Through volunteering, I wish to bring happiness to this world as well as to inspire others to volunteer and make a difference”
Tuongvan Le, a member of the 2011-2012 Youth Leadership Council, attends Stanton College Preparatory High School.

She is also a member of the Science Honor Society, the Future Business Leaders of America, and the president of the service club, CAS.
