“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” is a popular saying, and one that embodies the positive, tenacious attitude of CMU-Q student MinKyung Kang. Although depression and family tragedy plagued her young adulthood in South Korea, MinKyung took a leap of faith and applied to the rigorous Biological Sciences program at Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar. This life-changing decision to travel the world has presented many opportunities for MinKyung, and she decided to share her positive outlook with her classmates by creating the Dreamers Club.
Open to Education City students and faculty, the Dreamers Club provides a platform for those who share the passion of helping others achieve their aspirations.
