Hear what a student leaders and advisors are saying about Hoan
"I was moved by his words"
When I heard Hoan keynote the UNAVSA (Union of North American Vietnamese Student Association) annual conference in Denver, I was truly moved by his words. He finds a way to relate every day experiences to profound learning lessons that the students can understand. Students connected with him because you could hear the humility within his voice. By sharing his personal story, students were able to take the life lessons that they learned and apply it to their lives.

:Hoan has a unique ability to connect with students"
"What I enjoyed most about Hoan's message was that he shared important life lessons in a way that students could easily relate to. He also helped them to see challenges not as problems but as opportunities to grow and develop their character. Out of all of the speakers that I have heard, what makes Hoan unique is his ability to connect with the students. The common feedback that I heard from students was that Hoan was genuine, relatable, and truly understood wha tstudents are going through."
