Upon entering a vast new campus, I found it intimidating meeting new people and getting out of my comfort bubble. As I attended my first VSA general meeting, I was immediately greeted by the most welcoming and kind-spirited people which very much eased my transition into UW. Personally for me, growing up as a Vietnamese-American was a complex debate of assimilation but VSAUW has given endless opportunities to get in touch and truly take pride in the Vietnamese side of my identity. Whether it was through the biweekly meetings, volunteering events, dance team, etc., this group was always a fun and exciting environment I knew I could go to and truly be myself in. Go dawgs go VSA!!
