Pursuing my Passion at Stanford

SPCI creative writing ISAKWhat did you do this summer?

Lien – Vietnam, Class of 2017, attended Stanford’s Pre-Collegiate Summer Institute to hone her creative writing skills. Here is her report:

To me, the first step in changing the world is to change yourself, and with this philosophy, I participated in the Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies to improve my Creative Writing skills.

I have always had a huge passion for creative writing and Literature. I gained lots of useful and applicable knowledge throughout my experience at Stanford, both academic wise and daily life wise. I also heard various amazing stories and got to know wonderful people there. Additionally, I strongly believe that literature, as a part of the arts, has an enormous power to change individuals. In English class, we are exploring how mass media informs, persuades and entertains. It is undeniable that the products of creative writing, such as fiction and poetry, are a form of mass media; and I am happy to produce arts that leave a positive impact to the world.

I can’t wait to share my experiences with my friends and teachers when I go back to ISAK!”
