On April 5th, hotpot! joined the NEUVSA (North East Union of Vietnamese Student Associations, their acronym is pronounced “new-V.S.A.”) at Drexel University for a day filled with inspiration and conversations. My jaded heart was actually warmed by the keynote speaker, Ethan Nguyen, who shared an engaging and participatory speech on the power of courage and the possibilities that come with building friendships and networks with others in a larger community–one of those amazing speeches where the speaker facilitated the audience to get to the theme. Ethan is seriously TEDx material, check out this presentation he did at TEDxphilly, here.
Campus organizing is sooo refreshing. Check out NEUVSA’s website: http://conference.neuvsa.org and feel the organizational capacity of these amazing college activists. They have an amazing film-maker amongst their midst…talk about inspirational~ Also, their banh mi’s tasted really good too. yay food.
