Ashley Choo-Hen `20 was led to Carolina by a love for the Classics (Latin and Greek) and a scholarship that promised to provide financial support, faculty mentoring and special program opportunities.

When her scholarship endowment was temporarily unable to generate enough income to cover the award amount, the Cornerstone Fund allowed the Carolina community to step in and make up the difference. Because of this, Ashley has been afforded the opportunity to take full advantage of all that the university has to offer. In doing so, she has excelled tremendously, earning multiple awards for her accomplishments and conducting research that leaves her heelprint around the world.
