WHAT IS SUMMIT?
The Union of Vietnamese Student Associations Gulf Coast is continuing the organization’s largest initiative with its Second Annual Leadership and Professional Development Summit, in which young leaders across the Gulf Coast region and other regions will network with one another, address Vietnamese identity, develop professional skills, and to foster better work ethic towards their careers.
Our organization is only five years old, but we’ve grown quickly over these short years and have emerged as one of the strongest UVSA regions in all of North America; we have a lot to be proud of. To continue this momentum we are aiming to offer our members a program that will aid them in their future, particularly their careers beyond VSA and college. This year, our goal is to host 150 attendees with our staff of 40 volunteers across a three day weekend.
This year, our goal and theme is the focus on individual identity. We all come from different nurturing environments that help shape us into who we are and to help us form our identities. As we go through life, we try to figure out who we are across sexual identity, professional identity, goal identity, and overall: self identity.
