PHETSAKONE ALLEN, Instructional Office Assistant, is a valued asset to the Behavioral and Social Sciences division. No job is too big or too small to tackle and see through to completion. When this winner was 14 years old, she immigrated to the United States and learned to speak English. Additionally, she continues to learn—she recently completed the ESL Instructor Fast Track Training because she wants to help those who struggle with the language barrier. Her goal is to teach English and work in refugee camps to help those in need as she was helped years ago.
