“This year’s list of Rhodes Scholars is remarkable for many reasons. Almost two-thirds of the recipients are women and nearly half are first-generation Americans or immigrants. Harvard University student Jin Park has become the first recipient of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals to earn a Rhodes Scholarship.”
Park came to the U.S. with his family when he was 7 years old. He’s a senior at Harvard working toward a degree in molecular and cellular biology with a minor in ethnicity, migration and rights.
