I wanted a space to truly belong and celebrate my culture with people who grew up with the same food, language, and music, and who knew the joys and challenges of being Vietnamese and Asian-American. It was a natural next step to join VSAUW. This organization has allowed me to channel my creative energy to serve the Viet student community and push myself to become a leader. And through VSAUW and the NW VSA region at large I have been blessed to meet so many people who both strengthen and humble me, and that share my passions and challenge me to grow everyday.
