Phi Dee’s are still super active in the summer!! Me and my fellow Phi Dee sister, Yen Tran, are the execs for OU’s Vietnamese Student Association this year and we traveled to the Union of North American Vietnamese Student Associations conference in Denver, Colorado to find out ways to better our beloved VSA!!
Here are some Phi Dees and our Tau Kappa Omega Brothers with uNAVSA speaker and Tau Kappa Omega founder, Michael To.
Here’s our Southern VSA region!! SOUTH IN THE HOOOOOOOOOOOOOUSE!!!
During the conference, we looked deeper into how important it is to preserve the Vietnamese heritage within our community, especially since the Vietnam War created such a devastating chapter in American and Vietnamese history. Furthermore, we discussed the steps that we could take to stop human trafficking in Vietnam. We were also inspired to take part in our states’ political system to give Vietnamese as well as other minorities equality and more rights in our communities.
We met so many AMAZING Vietnamese-American speakers such as illustrator and author, G.B. Tran; ABC Director of Digital Platforms, Ngan Nguyen; also, International College/Youth Speaker and author of Succeeding in the Real World Inc., Hoan Do…just to name a few!
We’re looking forward to bringing everything we learned in Denver back to our Asian American community at the University of Oklahoma and can’t wait for uNAVSA-9 next year!! :)
