About
Shuun Meng

Shuun was one of Hey Mentor’s program alumni and volunteer mentor who helped found Hey Mentor. He exemplifies the qualities of a first-generation college student through his love for learning. To his friends and family he was known for being positive, caring, outgoing, intelligent, and selfless. Shuun graduated from Chief Sealth International High School where he balanced being an International Baccalaureate (IB) student and being active in giving back to his school and community through programs like Key Club. He was passionate about math/physics and also excelled in business where he earned a certificate through the Academy of Finance. In hopes to continue Shuun’s legacy of community service and passion for education, Hey Mentor is honored to establish the Shuun Meng Memorial Scholarship, to support future students who are dedicated and driven, like Shuun, to continue his/her education beyond high school.
