Delving Deeper

When I say Lunar New Year, what comes to mind? Do you know why we celebrate it? Why it is important? To me, Lunar New Year celebrations bring to mind performances, firecrackers, the culture of my parents’ birthplaces, tradition, and most of all, family. At home, I always partook in the festivities as a dragon dancer, performer and volunteer. I have fond memories of friends and family and the day brought me closer to my heritage. Hundreds of people would come to the festival; kids would play carnival games, parents…

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I’ve never actually experienced being a minority until I came to Davidson where there was only one other Vietnamese American in my year (shout out to Kaylie). Over these past few years, I’ve learned a phentermine weight loss lot, but even more importantly, I’ve learned I don’t know a lot. Though Davidson doesn’t offer classes such as this one yet, Davidson has showed me the skills I need to research and learn independently, which brings me to this class.
