"As I sit in the airport…I can’t help but hear his voice telling me how lucky I am.”
This week, we will hear from Jennifer Louie. She just finished her first year at UW, and she’s studying abroad in Vietnam this summer. Jennifer is part of the Comparative History of Ideas (CHID) program led by Professor Christoph Giebel.

Jennifer chose the program for its service-learning component with PeaceTrees Vietnam. For one week, she and other students will help rebuild a community in Dong Ha, Quang Tri Province – which is still affected by unexploded ordnance from the war. She hopes to stay “completely vulnerable and open” to immerse herself in Vietnam.

Follow Jennifer on tumblr to get the full scoop! Her posts strike a good balance of excitement, reflection and information. Before Jennifer departed for Vietnam, she shared her reflection on what her grandfather always said. “He told me…to appreciate what I have, big or small, and taught me that happiness can be found in the simplest aspects of life. As I sit in the airport…I can’t help but hear his voice telling me how lucky I am.”

We'd love to hear about your summer activities. Send us an e-mail at seac@uw.edu

It includes several very detailed  essays on the pieces, scholarly resources, etc. It is visually impressive, scholarly rigorous, and easy to navigate. I highly recommend it. It even includes my favorite piece -- a sculpture of the Monkey's Gift of Honey to the Buddha!"
