Ý Thức Journal

Ý Thức, or “Consciousness” in Vietnamese, is the official, non-profit journal of the United Vietnamese Student Associations of Northern California. The purpose of this journal is to document the events, struggles, dreams, and opinions of the students of Northern California in helping to define the Vietnamese-American culture. The name comes from its meaning: “Sense of one’s personal or collective identity, including the attitudes, beliefs, and sensitivities held by or considered characteristic of an individual or group.”
