Thursday, February 21, 2019

Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) student Cam Do, along with seven students from all over the U.S., is recognized at this week’s Achieving the Dream (ATD) conference in Long Beach. Do was a participant in the ATD’s Community College Student Leadership Program, a year-long program designed to enhance the selected scholars’ leadership, critical thinking and networking skills. She will receive a $1000 scholarship, sponsored by the community college honor society Phi Theta Kappa. Do read her poem at an opening ceremony in front of 2000 people, “I am from a refusal to surrender… I am from the myth that introverts cannot be leaders. I dare not to be silent. I dare to speak up. I am from poverty to advocacy. I am from insignificance to leadership.”
