Wendy Dong is a 18 year old freshman at the University of Michigan. At Adams High School, she was a member of student council, council of the Freshman Mentor Program, National Honor Society, National Spanish Honor Society, Rochester's Youth Action Committee, and a captain of the varsity swim and state team. Her passion for volunteer and leadership services began at a young age when she first helped out at a summer camp and served on the Executive Board of student council at her middle school.

After attending Stanford's Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes in 2015 and 2017, she discovered a way to make the leap to achieve her goals of giving more to help others.
Wendy hopes through this effort, it will make a difference in the lives and areas surrounding her.
