    About

    I go by "Vinney" and I come from a traditional Vietnamese heritage. I speak English, Vietnamese, Spanish and Japanese. My hobbies include singing, hip-hop dance, graphic design and sand volleyball. I am currently a senior at Stanford University in the Program in Human Biology with an Area of Concentration in Human Development and Education. My research interests include craniofacial development and morphology and educational equity in low income, first-generation students of color. I have been an active agent for change through Next Generation Scholars, a non-profit college access group aimed at providing dedicated, underserved students all the advantages available to their more privileged peers. I hope to pursue graduate studies in education and later attend medical school. Outside of academics, I am blessed to be in Talisman, an a cappella group at Stanford University dedicated to sharing stories through song. Our music is rooted in the African diaspora and the African American traditions, but since our founding in 1990 we have branched out to sing grassroots music from all over the world. Talisman has performed at venues like the White House, The Olympics, and the Hollywood Bowl. Personally, I sing tenor and I have traveled with Talisman twice to South Africa twice and once to the American south, performed with artists like Vusi Mahlasela and the Soweto Gospel Choir.
