SDAFF Intern Introduction Frank

Hi Everyone,

I'm one of the new interns at SDAFF, and I'm definitely excited to start. This is also my first blog ever, so this is a unique experience for me. So far everyone has been so nice, it's like we're new additions to the family. But yea, i can't wait to get things rolling. So I wanted to start my first blog with a little introduction about me.

My name is Frank, and i was born and raised in San Jose, CA. I have one younger sibling that goes to San Jose State University. My parents immigrated from Vietnam in the 1970s. My entire life i really didn't go out and do much. It was not until my Senior year in high school that i became involved. So i would say the first 17 years of my life was pretty boring. But after that, things got interesting.

I first started joining clubs just to get myself out there. I joined Key Club and Interact, which are basically clubs that are involved in the community. I was really inspired by the level of interest they had in the community, so i wanted to do something else after i graduated. So i decided to volunteer abroad in Vietnam. This was a way for me to connect to my parents and culture. I taught English and worked with children with disabilities. I was in Vietnam for 3 months, it was the most memorable three months.

Now I'm graduating from SDSU. In a nutshell, now I'm very much involved everywhere. SDAFF is another opportunity for me to gain valuable life experiences.
