Two Shoreline Community College students were honored at the All Academic ceremony at Puget Sound Community College on March 24, 2011.
International student, Ching-Hsuan Ma, who goes by Jeff, says he was always an “average” kid, referring to his academic accomplishments.
Yet at only 18, he has earned a 3.99 GPA at Shoreline Community College and was selected by his instructors to represent Shoreline as an All Academic student.
In his hometown, Ho Chi Minh City, Nguyen went to school from seven o’clock in the morning to 4:30 in the afternoon five days a week and half a day on Saturdays.
“It was a pretty intense education,” he said, adding that his commitment to school and the expectations of his parents and instructors played a huge role in his desire to succeed.
