Peter Nguyen

Peter got his masters in higher education in 2011, afterwards he worked for 2 years at a liberal arts college in multicultural affairs and social justice education. In 2013, he decided to join VIA for a gap year between jobs to learn more about Vietnam as a fellow. 4 years later and he’s still based in Vietnam where after being a VIA fellow for two years, he started The Lab, a small English center with community center aspirations, with some friends (two of whom also happened to be VIA fellows) in Vung Tau, Vietnam. VIA has teamed up with The Lab and Peter to recruit, support, and develop the community of fellows.
His passions center around issues of justice, equity, access, and education. In his free time, he likes to try to learn new things. Most recently, he’s been teaching himself how to code and learning Spanish. Since being in Vietnam, he’s also found time to dabble in drawing, playing the ukulele, and photography/video editing.
