Ethan Chung

Walter Payton College Prep

Hi, my name is Ethan Chung. I am a Freshman at Walter Payton College Prep and I live in the Bucktown-Wicker Park area. My favorite part about Chicago is the lakefront. In the summer, I enjoy spending time there with my friends. I am deeply passionate about helping others, especially those who are born into situations that don’t allow them an equal chance for success. There are neighborhoods in Chicago that don’t offer the same types of opportunity as other neighborhoods, and it isn’t fair that the environment in which you are born in can have any influence on your ability to be successful. Through the HLC, I would like the opportunity to explore these areas of the city and hopefully create positive change within them. I would also like to be able to create a program that lasts and will directly influence and change people’s lives for the better.
