Lucy

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Hometown: Dongyang, Zhejiang, China

“Lucy consistently rises to the challenge, growing in leaps and bounds from freshman year and continuing to find new ways to hone her skills. She writes creative fiction and poetry in English and was a member of the speech team during her sophomore year. She takes risks to move her learning forward and supports her classmates in their creative endeavors. And perhaps most importantly she continues to smile.

“This blend of hard work and self effacing modesty are both endearing and a testament to her ability to work and play as the moment demands.”

— English teacher Claire Concannon
