Yucheng Wu

Honolulu, Hawaii

Yucheng Wu, 17, of Honolulu, Hawaii, a senior at Maryknoll High School, has volunteered more than 1,000 hours of her time translating learning materials from English to Chinese for Khan Academy, a web-based nonprofit that offers free educational resources to students around the world, including those in rural and undeveloped regions. Yucheng was inspired to start volunteering for this organization after using Khan Academy’s resources to improve her English when she relocated to Hawaii from China.
