Raised by working-class Vietnamese immigrants in Tampa, Kevin has always been at the forefront of digital organizing. With experience working for numerous political campaigns and organizations as a communications specialist, he desires to answer one question: How can public servants adapt to a technologically progressing world? Kevin first immersed himself into this field as a Summer Fellow of Viet Fact Check, a project of the Progressive Vietnamese American Organization, where he researched sophisticated disinformation campaigns that were affecting the Vietnamese diaspora. However, his proudest memory working there would be a recent shoutout by John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight Show episode about misinformation.
You can usually see Kevin planning cultural events at the Asian American Center and solving projects within 180Degrees Consulting. He also serves as Head of Outreach at JumboSec, Tufts’ only cybersecurity and policy club. Outside of campus, he volunteers with the Clinic to End Tech Abuse, a Cornell Tech initiative that assists abuse victims against online harassment. Currently, Kevin is working with MassVOTE to combat voter inequity and bolster representation in marginalized communities across Massachusetts. He aspires to become a digital rights activist and lawyer in the public interest sector.
