Naomi Tegene ’19 (De La Salle House)
Scholar and Philanthropist
“At Trinity, my role in Mini-THON has led me to become passionate about giving back to our community. I will continue helping those in need throughout my future career in Nursing at Villanova University.”
On ways Trinity supported her:
Trinity has fostered an environment in which I have been able to grow spiritually in my relationship with God, as well as individually as a person. Over the last four years, Trinity has provided me with an exceptional education which I will carry with me and cherish for the rest of my life. Trinity has also instilled in me the importance of service and giving back to my community.
On how Trinity has helped her reach her goals:
My teachers and mentors at Trinity have challenged me to do my best in all my endeavors. They have helped me develop a strong work ethic, time-management skills, and determination, all of which are skills that have aided me in reaching goals in various aspects of my life. Our teachers and faculty at Trinity support each student unconditionally in every endeavor and genuinely want every student to reach their spiritual, academic, athletic, and personal goals. Being part of the Trinity community means being part of a reliable, family-like support system filled with individuals who are devoted to helping students succeed and reach their goals.
On the benefit of Trinity:
Throughout my time at Trinity, I have grown as a leader and as an individual. Coming to Trinity has also presented me with invaluable experiences which I believe will benefit me in every aspect of my future academically, as well as spiritually, and personally.
On her future:
After graduation, I will be studying Nursing. My passion for Nursing stems from my desire to dedicate my future to helping others and making a difference in people’s lives every day. After college, I plan to pursue my career in Nursing and most likely further my education in the field. I also hope to continue service in my community by actively participating in non-profit organizations and charities, a desire which Trinity has instilled in me.
On what she’ll miss:
I will miss most the family-like atmosphere of Trinity. Over the past four years, the relationships and memories I have developed with my teachers, mentors, and peers at Trinity are bonds which I will forever appreciate and cherish.
