Allow me to introduce myself, I am Bryan Le, a freshman that is currently attending a charter school by the name of “Downtown College Prep”. I am currently living with my parents and two younger siblings, one brother and one sister. Over my years in a public elementary school, I had seen others being happy because of one’s help and that made me feel happy inside.

As a rising Junior, I am well aware of the challenges I will face in the future, particularly in college; such as the demanding academics and the array of distractions.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Gurleen Sahansra since she began at Forest Hills High School at the beginning of her sophomore year. Being a new student can be a difficult adjustment for some students, but Gurleen never faltered in her academics. Her organizational skills, persistence in times of struggle, and intelligence were only some of her wonderful attributes that helped her along the way. Those same attributes were also helpful in her selection to be a member of our Health Professions program and National Honor Society chapter.
