Congratulations to Prof. Linda Vo for being featured on the UCI homepage
as part of the "Making their Mark" feature for Women's History Month.
"As director of Viet Stories: Vietnamese American Oral History Project at UCI, Vo and her team – including students – actively assemble, preserve and disseminate the life stories of Vietnamese Americans in Southern California. To date, they have captured more than 450 personal histories – over 180 of them fully digitized – about the legacies of war and struggle to craft a new life."
She was also featured in a Daily Pilot / Los Angeles Times article, “'Amazing stories of survival': UCI oral history project preserves Vietnamese refugees' hopes, fears and challenges,”
"There are so many in that first generation who want to tell their stories to their children and grandchildren, about what happened to them, what they did to survive, who they were — and they wanted to leave some sort of legacy."
