Sarah Gu

McLean, Virginia

Sarah Gu, 16, of McLean, Va., a junior at McLean High School, started “THE WINDOW,” an organization that has provided English language learning opportunities to 400 students in need from Shexian, China. Sarah regularly visits Shexian, her mother’s hometown, to run her program, and started the project after learning that a childhood friend had to drop out of school to work on a family farm.
