I was extremely proud of having played such an important role in this year’s Coffeehouse. In addition to leadership roles at school, I am also a leader in the Vietnamese-American community. I volunteer every Sunday morning as a Vietnamese language teacher at Phat An temple and have been a team captain for three consecutive years at the annual Phat An Survival Camp – a competitive camp where each team uses teamwork, resourcefulness, and determination to try to win first
