Condé Nast Teen Vogue Highlights Lana Condor’s Asia Foundation Scholarship Program

January 15, 2020 — Teen Vogue names The Asia Foundation in a feature interview with actor and 2019 Lotus Circle honoree Lana Condor

Lana’s passion for empowering education for young people has led her to organize a scholarship through the Asia Foundation, where girls from Cần Thơ, Vietnam, are sponsored for necessities such as books, uniforms, and transportation. She cites accessibility as a major issue for girls getting to school, and the scholarship provides bikes, which cut the travel time in half. Lana recently worked with Michelle Obama for her Girls Opportunity Alliance and visited the grassroot leaders in Vietnam and Malaysia to break down the barriers that prevent girls from pursuing their educational aspirations along with meeting the students themselves.
