The Vietnamese living overseas are a special group of people. We are a people without a land. But, that doesn’t mean we don’t have a culture. Regardless of our varying grasps of the Vietnamese language and our cultural heritage, we are bounded by our struggles, our values, and our parents’ quirkiness. In our hearts, if nowhere else, we are Vietnamese. The I Am Vietnamese Project aims to inspire and connect those like us to provide a sense of community while we struggle on own personal journeys, and to remind to us that we are not alone. We share the same hardships — overprotective parents, the inability to communicate, the struggle to incorporate western and eastern ideals, and the fear of disappointing others. As we read personal accounts of those like us, we feel inspired, connected, and like we belong.
Our goal is to have a collection of short stories published in 2014. This collection will be readily available worldwide. All proceeds will go towards three phenomenal charities — the Vietnamese Culture and Science Association (VCSA), Sunflower Mission, and the Vietnamese American Scholarship Foundation (VASF). Each charity has touched us personally.
