The Union of Vietnamese Student Associations of the Midwest and the University of Cincinnati Vietnamese Student Association are proud to announce the theme for the upcoming 16th Annual Vietnamese Interacting As One Leadership Conference as "Anchors Aweigh!"
“Anchors Aweigh!” is a naval term that refers
to the moment an anchor is hoisted upwards, allowing the ship to sail forward. This imagery as the conference theme alludes to a common refugee narrative of the boat people during the Vietnamese Exodus. It is an important part of our origin story; the strength and resilience of our generations prior should serve as inspiration for the community at large, now and in the future.
The focus of the theme within conference this year lies within the importance of weighing anchor. Our future as a community depends on the ability for each and every one of us to think of fresh and innovative ways to set sail and push ourselves forward, as individuals and as a stronger community with every coming generation.
How can we accomplish these goals? How can we empower each other as students and young professionals? How do we advance ourselves socially, culturally, intellectually, and how do we bring others up with us? Answer these questions, ask your own, and more at the 16th Annual VIA-1.
Be sure to mark you calendars! VIA-1 will take place from April 6 to 8, 2018 at the University of Cincinnati. Join UVSA-Midwest, UC VSA, and other schools from across the country for an enjoyable and memorable weekend.
