In this week’s edition of the Chronicles, we’re returning to our CWIB Member Feature. Meet Mia Vu, a current CWIB member and a freshman here at Virginia Tech. Keep reading to get to know a little bit about her!
Q. What is your major?
A. “Management - I am also interested in BIT and Marketing so I may switch or decide to double major.”
Q. Why did you choose Virginia Tech over other schools?
A. “One of the main reasons I chose Virginia Tech is definitely the food. #2 in the country? Sign me up.”
I think both CWIB members and Virginia Tech students would definitely agree with Mia :)
Q. What is your favorite Virginia Tech Tradition?
A. “It has to be “Enter Sandman” at football games in Lane Stadium. The chills I get when this song plays during a football game is out of this world. When we’re all jumping in the stands, it feels so great to be a Hokie.”
Q. Why did you join CWIB?
A. “I joined CWIB to meet other powerful women in business. I have met so many new people that are a big part of my life today.”
Q. What has been your favorite part of CWIB as a member this year?
A. “The joint meetings with companies and organizations that CWIB is able to bring in have been my favorite events because it shows her how successful women can be in the business field, my field of interest.”
Q. Outside of CWIB, what are you involved in?
A. “I am involved with VSA (Vietnamese Student Association). As a freshman representative for the organization, my co-chair and I plan events for other freshman members to connect within.”
Q. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
A. “Japan - I love their culture and would love to be able to try their authentic foods and cuisine.”
Q. If you could give your younger self any piece of advice, what would you tell her?
A. “Take everything one step at a time. Looking at the big picture or into the future can be stressful and overwhelming. I also believe that everything happens for a reason, so let nature take its course.”
