SELC 17 Directors
Helen Pham was born in Saigon, Vietnam and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Currently, Helen is a senior at the University of Georgia. She’s double majoring in Finance and Supply Chain Management. She has been involved with UGA VSA for the past three years and has been on the executive board as treasurer and sponsorship director for two terms. She is passionate about learning leadership lessons, social justice, and cultural diversity. She loves to see how each member contributed to the VSA family to put up successful events, especially amazing culture shows. Every single moment with VSA inspires her to be connected with the Vietnamese culture and a better leader in the community. Her favorite quote of all time is from Mulan: "The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.
Jacquelynne Huynh is a graduate from the University of Georgia and is currently working in a small consulting firm in Alpharetta. Whenever she is free, she spends time with family or plays volleyball with friends. Her favorite quote, and the motto she tries to live by each day is, "A small act of kindness can have a ripple that can change the world." She thinks this ripple effect translates to more than just acts of kindness; she thinks it can also be applied to everything else. If you do something terrible today, there will most likely be a consequence tomorrow. If you inspire someone today, that someone might want to inspire someone else the next. That's what she wants camp to be about. She wants to inspire attendees to want to inspire others to be leaders, to be role models, to be a greater individual. Besides these crazy ideas, she's a sometimes spontaneous, sometimes shy, sometimes awkward person who wants to make friends and avoid people at the same time. She can't wait to see everyone at camp!
Nam Nguyen (UGA Grad, Internal Auditor, Sports-Enthusiast, Hustler, Bronze 5 30LP) joined the Vietnamese Student Association back in 2013. Since then, he hasn't accomplished much. Help this poor man accomplish something in his life by joining Family Committee at this year's SELC. Together, with a little bit of hope and magic, maybe, just maybe, you can help add to this person's inane biography.
His favorite quote is: "Believe in your flyness, conquer your shyness" - Kanye.
