Karen Cao Le
I was born and raised in Toronto and know one of my values in life is to help as many people as I can.  I went to school for Social Services and worked and volunteered with VAT.  From that experience, I benefitted by learning so much of my Vietnamese culture and gained friendships from meeting people through community events and groups. 
Six years later, I am proud to see the Vietnamese youth involvement is growing and glad to have this opportunity again to be working with them for the VIVA 2012 Gala.   
Jenny Le
I am a University of Toronto alumni, dog lover, self-proclaimed Pinterest addict, and foodie. Presently, I work at a non-profit organization as a Fundraising and Development Coordinator.
I worked for VAT in the past, so I am excited to return and contribute in a different capacity to its 40th anniversary celebration in support of First Step Camp. I hope to give back the same opportunities and experiences our community provided me with throughout my youth. 

Michelle Do
Currently, I am working at an international engineering consulting firm as the HR Recruiter with hopes of receiving my CHRP designation.
For the past 4 years, I’ve taught Vietnamese to Senior Kindergartens for Dufferin Peel School Board every Saturday morning and helped with various events at Our Lady of LaVang Vietnamese Catholic Community.
I want to be a part of a project that is community beneficial, empowers youths to promote our heritage, and show my roots as a Vietnamese Canadian.
Ylan Nguyen
As a proud Vietnamese-Canadian, I am dedicated to helping the youth and young adults of the community.  I spend most of my days working in the lab to complete my PhD degree in Biochemistry at McMaster University but the rest of my time is spent working with the Youth and Young Adult Ministry team at my church. 
I am honored to be volunteering my time to the VIVA 2012 Gala to help raise money for the First Step Camp, where high school students will have the opportunity to learn about themselves and be empowered to be the best they can be.

Since graduating from McMaster University a few years ago I have been working as a trader in the markets but have recently taken my long time passion of photography to a professional level.
I want to document and showcase the VIVA Gala to the community; show them what a wonderful and elegant event that the Vietnamese youth can organize.
Nathan Pham
My name is Nathan Pham, a student at York university. I'm also a member of VSAY.
In the past I've participated in several events such at Thoi Bao Festival, Hoi Cho Tet, UVSA's Giong Ca Vang and I would like to contribute more to the Vietnamese community.

I want to participate in the Viva gala because I want to meet new people and networking.
