Emma Thompson 2010 Scholar, Mercer Island High School
"Culture and diversity are two things I seek in my life. Different cultures bring liveliness and creativity and new solutions. They should be celebrated as opportunities that enable individuals and communities to truly thrive and succeed. As Stanley Ann did, I hope to use all of my gifts and opportunities to promote the health and education of marginalized people around the world."
