Jahpa Awng

Major/Minor: Biology
Class Standing: Sophomore
Position: Program Assist​ant

My name is Jahpa Awng. I am from Myanmar, also known as Burma. Before I came to the United States, I was a refugee. I moved from one country to another before I came to the U.S. I enjoy drawing, cross stitching, knitting, solving puzzles, listening to music, and watching movies in my free time. Being a student assistant at the EOP is good experience for me. I get to meet a lot of people and make a lot of connections. I aspire to be a doctor and my personal motto is “No matter what is going on, never give up!”

Janet Mensah

Major/Minor: Ethnic Studies, Pre-medicine
Class Standing: Junior
Position: Program Assistant

My name is Janet Mensah. My parents are from Ghana and I was born and raised in Bronx, New York, but I have lived in Colorado for more than 10 years. I am the only girl out of five brothers and I enjoy being a part of big family. I love to read in my free time (mostly books based in other cultures) and also enjoy listening to music such as smooth jazz, ballads, and gospel music. I have big plans to be a physician one day (hopefully a gastroenterologist) and serve underrepresented and disadvantaged communities. My goal is to go Ghana and work as a physician and support the community. I know big dreams, but with the support and love of God, my peers, family, friends, and mentors, I know I can do it! I love to help out students whenever I can on and off campus. I’m always here to lend a helping hand and to provide any additional help.
