Kongmeng recently graduated from Saint John’s University with an Environmental Studies degree. He had an opportunity to study abroad in Japan for a semester and ever since has been interested in Japanese culture. Living in the rural southwest Minnesota for half of his life, Kongmeng is still learning what it truly means to be a resident in the Twin Cities.

As a first-generation student, Kongmeng wishes to guide students in their journey towards post-secondary secondary education. He has always been interested in working with youth and is glad to be able to be on the Breakthrough team for the academic year.

What Kongmeng usually does in his free time:

Spend time with family
Go on scenic walks
Fishing and swimming
Watch anime and movies
Study Japanese
