Student of the Month

July 2008



Nhat Thi Duy Nguyen from Vietnam

Nhat Thi Duy Nguyen came to Green River from Vietnam winter quarter 2006. She began her studies in IESL (Intensive English as a Second Language) level 4 and two years later was accepted into UC Berkeley as Chemical Engineering Major.

According to Nhat, "IESL prepared me really well for the future.  I was able to observe academic classes and ask questions."  This enabled Nhat to make an informed decision about her major.

Nhat's initial intention was to study business because that is what her parents wanted. However, she was so impressed by the science faculty and their passion for teaching that she decided to pursue Chemical Engineering. "My childhood dream was to invent a perfume," said Nhat.

Nhat was involved in many campus activities. She was the President of the Vietnamese Club, she participated in science clubs, she worked in the International Programs office, and she lived in Campus Corner Apartments.

Nhat was also accepted in to Colombia University, UC Davis, UC San Diego, and the University of Colorado.  Nhat will be attending UC Berkeley in the fall of 2008.
