MEET OUR SCHOLARS - CLASS OF 2024
KATERINA DUDA (SHE/HER/HERS)
CLASS PRESIDENT '24
Hi there! I’m Katerina, and I’m honored to be president of our 2024 Global Scholars! As a member of both Model UN and WorldQuest, I’m interested in all things global, and love the connections and opportunities provided by the Global Scholars program. In my free time, I live to settle down with a good book, cuddle with my lovely (and crazy) German Shepherd, tend to my plants (if I remember them), and maybe, just maybe, do some writing. I’m looking forward to participating in the 2023 Madagascar trip in the coming year!
JADEN YOUNG (SHE/HER/HERS)
Hi, my name is Jaden Young! I am doing the humanities pathway and I love all things history. I was just in Spain, my first time out of the country and my experience from Global Scholars was an amazing tool in helping me travel to a new country. I’m in student senate, EAAA, and I love all things outdoors. Global Scholars is a fantastic way to get involved at Edina and around the globe and I’m so excited to share my project with everyone.

SARAH HU (SHE/HER/HERS)
My name is Sarah and I really enjoy photography, skiing, and reading. Hopefully I can become a Ski Patroller soon as I am already certified for Outdoor Emergency Transportation.
