Pham Nguyen Thanh Vincent

The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid

Vincent once thought of being a Youtuber, and even considered attending a film program to be a television screenwriter. With some foresight, he opted to attend a more affordable public institution near his home in California. There, he immediately failed his first university class and was off to a rough start. To raise his GPA, he took an Education Studies class, which radically changed his outlook on society and the world around him (and, fortunately, his GPA). From then onward, Vincent has worked towards creating and providing equitable access to education for a diverse set of students so they can have transformative learning experiences, much like he experienced in university days.

Vincent graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a degree in Political Science, of which content he does not use but skills he does #liberalarts. He enjoys going for runs, moderate amounts of caffeine and sleeping.
