Class of 2016 Alumni spends summer volunteering in Vietnam
2016 Sep 9James Jenkins spent his summer between graduation and reporting to Quantico for Marine training in Vietnam, volunteering at three different orphanages in Saigon. James did his research and volunteered through an organization called International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ) which facilitates volunteer opportunities worldwide. "I had a really incredible experience in South East Asia. Vietnam is completely different than anything I've ever experienced and I learned so much. Having the privilege to work with hundreds of children in orphanages around the city was very moving. And being in a third world country for an extended period of time really changes you in a good way, something everyone should do at least once in their life. I learned a lot about humility and to really appreciate all I have."
