“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.
