Schreyer Scholar Jackie Zheng

I really enjoy being around other Scholars and focusing on things that don’t necessarily get brought up on a daily basis. For example, we’ve talked about Afghanistan and refugees and mental illness. It’s really nice how Scholars come together and talk about ideas. Everyone just respects each other. Everyone just wants to support each other and push each other, making sure everyone is doing their best.
