“When I think about peace, these are the feelings that unfortunately come to mind – helplessness, frustration, sadness. As a college student, I am constantly learning about the injustices that our world faces without a clear solution. Despite society telling me that I have the power to make a difference, I feel powerless. Through this peace offering, I hope to reach out to anyone else who may be feeling the same way and let them know that they are not alone.”Stella NguyenVietnamHo Chi Minh City, VietnamStella (Như) Nguyễn is a junior at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) studying Communications, International Development, and Film.
