Jennifer Robbins introduces us to Diana Nguyen, our 'HI Achiever' from Kaimuki High School. She started a program that reaches out to freshmen, so the transition to high school is easier and successful when it comes to hitting the books and having a place to turn to for help.
Diana has spent every Saturday for the year and a half mentoring students from guiding them with school advice to helping them with their homework. While going to school, she is taking several community college courses, as well. Her drive stems from her parents who came here from Vietnam in hopes for a better life and good education.
