Meet the VSA Board

Hello! We're your cabinet members for the 2018-2019 academic year. We're all super excited to help VSA continue to grow and create a loving community for you to be a part of. But first, let us tell you a little about ourselves and why we joined in the first place!

Nguyễn Tiên Angelica

Angelica is an MCB major entering her junior year. She enjoys eating mooncake, talking in broken Vietnamese to her friends and family (but she’s working on it!), and planning things. She loves Cal VSA’s constantly changing perspective towards bigger, more inclusive events and hopes to contribute positively to this community that has already given her so much.

Hoàng Thùy An Kathy

Kathy is a second year thinking about going into Data Science or Business.
