Nam Nguyen is currently a junior at Washington State University (Washington, USA) pursuing double degrees in International Business and Marketing. Nam stands out as the first and only student in WSU’s 128-year history to study abroad on all seven continents. For Nam, studying abroad is not just about gaining new experiences, but an opportunity to not only allow a single set of ideologies, but to figure out a totally different style of ideologies. He believes that studying abroad has helped him learn more about himself as an individual and learn more about his own culture when seen in different lights. He is also a McNair Scholar, Carson Fellow, Harold Frank Engineering Entrepreneurship Institute Fellow in addition to being a NUFP Fellow with NASPA, the national professional association for student affairs professionals. Nam was recently recognized by NASPA with the Region V Undergraduate Rising Star Award. He loves learning and exploring new ways of thinking. He has a thirst for learning, developing, and succeeding. Born and raised in a small town in southern Vietnam, Nam is fluent in Vietnamese and is the first person in his family to compete high school, let alone study at university.
