Welcome to the USC Vietnamese Student Association (VSA) website!
My name is Kevin Nguyen, and I am this year’s USC VSA president. I will be serving all of you throughout the 2014-2015 school year. We’re excited to have each and every one of you as a part of our Trojan family, and more importantly, our VSA family. Our executive board is more than just a leadership group, but instead it is a family dedicated to helping all of our members have the best experience possible here at USC.
I have been blessed to be a part of VSA from my freshman year. From being an insecure freshman, I took on a lead role in our annual culture show, and being a part of VSA made me feel like I was a part of something bigger than myself. It helped me to find friends, confidence, and a family that I never knew I had. Where else would I be able to share a love of Vietnamese food with? Where else would I be able to celebrate the Lunar New Year and meet other people from other schools at their own VSAs? I found all of that, and more here at USC VSA. Now, I’m no longer that freshman, but instead my executive board and I hope to bring new people to our family, help them find a home, and find a greater appreciation for Vietnamese culture.
We welcome anybody and everybody with open arms and full hearts. I hope that you will find comfort in VSA, and that you can consider us your family away from home. You may come as strangers, but you will as family.
I can’t wait to meet all the new members of our family. Never hesitate to contact us if you ever need anything, because first and foremost, we are here for you. Wishing the best for all of our members, both new and old. Most importantly of all, however, always remember to Fight On!
