She wanted to study abroad. She wanted to earn a degree in nursing. She wanted to sing and share her happiness. Anna Bui was blooming into the woman she aspired to become when her life tragically ended.
Anna’s family and friends hope that creating an endowment fund at UW Bothell will assist students similar to Anna – those aspiring to work in health care and are interested in obtaining a global perspective on it – but who might not be able to afford this experience. The Anna Bui World of Hope Fund will provide financial support to eligible students for off-setting the cost of a study abroad or other global experiences, that would otherwise be unable due to financial hardship. Preference for this scholarship is given towards students who are interested in pursuing a career in the healthcare field.
Support of the Anna Bui World of Hope Fund is a way for the community, including high school friends, UW Bothell classmates, people who sang in a choir with Anna and others, to keep her aspirations alive.

"Life is so wonderful. Don't waste it. Love and accept yourself because you are only you and that should be enough. You are beautiful and special in your own way. Don't ever let anyone tell you differently. Keep your head up and be proud of who you are because you are loved.” Anna Bui
