VietPride Scholarship Fundraising 2015
Team Member: Andy Nguyen
I turn 22 today! Horay! (Getting old lol)
Looking back 22 years, I realize I'm very fortunate to have the freedom to grow and become the best I can be. Travel is a big part of my life, and while Oktoberfest is probably the best party I've been, there are many who are not as fortunate as I am and it hurts me to see a child given up on the dream to become an engineer because the family is struggling to put food on the table, let alone money to study.
As a firm believer in education, I believe giving someone a chance to grow is the best gift than anything else that one could buy. So instead of asking for a round the world flight ticket in first class ;), my gift registry for this year is a scholarship to help a student go to school. As Nelson Mandela said: "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" We can all do our part to make it happen, and I hope you will join me in making the world a bit better place to live :)
Share the love to get the love! Every donor will receive a post card from the lovely San Francisco because you just did something awesome, and I'll send the biggest donor a secret gift!
Every contribution counts, no matter how big how small.
About Viet Pride Scholarship:
Viet Pride Scholarship was first introduced in 2013 with a mission to assist disadvantaged LGBT youth to acquire vocational training, undergraduate education, or English enrichment. The scholarship hopes to serve as a source of pride and empowerment for those who are strained by circumstance.
