While at UMass Boston Do has also interned with the Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Center and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. She takes time out of her schedule to teach Vietnamese to American--born Vietnamese children and organizes cultural events at a Vietnamese Community Center in Dorchester.

“As a new immigrant to this country, Thao is drawn to teaching the value of Vietnamese culture to second-generation Vietnamese Americans,” wrote Assistant Professor of Chemistry Deyang Qu, who is Do’s research advisor. “Thao has become a shining star at UMass Boston.”

The undergraduate JFK Award is given to one student who demonstrates an excellent academic record, has a commitment to service, and acts as a good citizen of the university and the world. Each year, the award recipient receives a $1,000 honorarium, a bust of John F. Kennedy, and the opportunity to speak at their commencement ceremony. Do is the 33rd UMass Boston JFK winner.
