Tuan Ho. Tuan is a first generation Vietnamese-American immigrant from Dorchester of Boston. During his teenage years, he was awarded the Young Leader in Recognition Award from Harvard Institute of Politics for serving the community of Boston through multiple civic engagement projects and teaching thousands of immigrant children in Dorchester.
Because of his experience in funding his college education at Northeastern University, he founded his company, ScholarJet, to help students earn scholarships based on their skills set instead of writing essays.
At the age of 23, Tuan is committed to his vision of making an impact on the world and was named a Priscilla Chan Stride Fellow from the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative (co-founded by Mark Zuckerberg).
