Rena Dang - SWHS

Rena Dang
Spring Woods High School
College/School: Texas A&M University
Career Goal: Biochemistry

Rena is a member of the National Honor Society, and she is Student Council vice president and president of the Humanitarian Society. She was also a member of the high school marching and concert bands. Rena volunteers at The Village Healthcare Center, Spring Spirit Baseball and as a teacher’s assistant for the Vietnamese School.

She says that her five-year plan is to complete a medical degree and then be a church missionary that travels within the United States. “People may say that the homeless and sick here are better off compared to people in different countries, but there are many people in the United States that need just as much help, especially with rising medical costs,” she states.

Rena’s senior counselor writes that “she is passionate about learning and at the same time compassionate, kind and caring toward her family, friends and people around her. She is highly respected among her peers as well as her teachers.”

Rena plans to study biochemistry at Texas A&M University. Graduating in the top 3 percent of her class with a rigorous Advance Placement schedule, Rena should have no trouble reaching her goal of becoming a doctor.
