Transcript REMEMBER ^ ^^^ImaliesrsTOlIn^ celebrate their heritage With such a colorful history, it is no wonder that the Vietnamese students at UH were eager to learn more about their own culture and share it with their fellow students. The Vietnamese Students Association (VSA) enabled them to do just that. President Duy Nguyen pointed out that while many Vietnamese students were proud of their heritage, they often did not know as much about it as they wanted. "I joined because I wanted to explore the history and the roots of the Vietnamese culture" said Nguyen, a junior Interdisciplinary Studies major. Throughout the year, the VSA held many different activities that promoted the Vietnamese culture. They showcased the wide variety of Vietnamese clothing with a fall fashion show, and held cooking competitions to share with the community the unique Vietnamese cuisine. They also honored Vietnamese festivals such as HORS D'OEUVRES? Freshman University Studies major Chau Nguyen, sophomore Computer Science major Tony Nguyen and sophomore Biology major May Nguyen helped serve food. Photo courtesy of VSA 1 love the fashion shows; the clothing is so beautiful." - Duy Nguyen the Vietnamese New Year in February and the Mid-Autumn Festival in September. During this celebration, the VSA helped the Vietnamese community pass out lanterns to children, a tradition for the holiday. The Vietnamese American Youth Network, of which the VSA was a part, worked together to assist the flood victims in western Vietnam. They organized a concert called Lay Troi Thoi Mua to raise funds for these devastated families. All of the proceeds and performers' fees were sent to Vietnam to aid the victims there. With hard work and an enthusiastic group, the VSA was able to share with the rest of the student population their deep and unique culture. While doing this, they also shared their own knowledge with each other and learned more about their own history.
