Hello, everyone! Welcome to my blog. I am extremely excited to be making a trip to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam this summer as a part of Pitt’s Plus3 study abroad program. Please follow along with me on my journey by checking into my blog.
I am a College of Business Administration student majoring in Supply Chain Management and Marketing with a Minor in Spanish. I am originally from an hour north of Philly in a town called Doylestown which is in Bucks County. I have been interested in Vietnam since childhood when a family friend went to Vietnam with Catholic Relief Services and ended up writing a children’s novel called Ten Mice for Tet. She brought us rice patty hats, a tapestry weaving, a copy of her book, and told stories about her experiences. Now, she says Vietnam has changed. I would like to see it before it changes even more. Also, I love traveling. As an extroverted person, I enjoy meeting people and being exposed to the unknown. I specifically selected Vietnam because I feel compelled to visit this exotic Asian culture and country. Lastly, I believe learning from Vietnamese businesses in Ho Chi Minh will be interesting, educational, and perhaps applicable to emerging start-ups in America or internationally at some point.
I cannot wait to share my daily experiences with you all and create a diary for myself.
