Welcome Alumnae
Global Changemakers

Global Changemaking Teenagers

Welcome back to our miniseries about Miss Hall’s women changing the world. This week’s Global Changemakers are future MHS alumnae, two sets of sophomores already making a difference using philanthropy to help friends and save lives.

In response to the outbreak of coronavirus in China, Elin Chen ’22, Julianna Jia ’22Dorothy Shi ’22, Kaity Weng ’22, Sammie Yu ’22, Christina Zheng ’22, and Ivy Ziyu ’22 launched a community fundraising initiative in February to support the purchase of medical supplies needed by healthcare workers. Calling themselves the Relief Awareness Facts Team (R.A.F.T.), these incredible students quickly raised $1,500 for masks, gowns, and other protective clothing for nurses at the Wuhan Tongji Hospital.
A few short weeks later, on the eve of Spring Break, their classmates Cailyn Tetteh ’22 and Truc Hoang ’22, proposed a relief fund to help friends struggling to adjust their travel plans as COVID-19 spread across the U.S. They articulated a vision of contributing boldly and creatively to the common good by banding together — individual student contributions and class gifts, plus support from MHS alumnae, family, and friends — to make a direct impact on the lives of students, right now.

Support this student-driven Community Action Fund and learn more.

"In the true spirit of Miss Hall's School our students have shown us the power in caring for each other and the benefits of being generous with ourselves and others as we navigate this changing landscape."
