Cassie Chee Furman University

Class of 2015
Hometown: Clarksburg, New Jersey

Cassie Chee doesn't have a set plan yet for her future, which is OK seeing as how she's too busy helping kids now. Her summer is booked doing work with Kids in Need of Defense, a non-profit dedicated to aiding immigrant children who end up in deportation proceedings. "I know we also have our poverty here, but I just don't see how we can send all those children back to the places they came from when they're so dangerous," she says, and she intends to walk the talk. Trips to Africa and South America have solidified her determination to move to Latin America, perhaps on a Peace Corps assignment. "I really feel because we were born so privileged I have a responsibility to help other people," she says.
