August 6 Club Meeting - Outbound Exchange Student Presentation

We heard an inspiring presentation by our outgoing Exchange Student Albert Truong at today’s meeting. He is off to a year in Japan in a few weeks. Albert started his presentation in Japanese with his name, where he was from and where he was off to. He then translated into English, so we could all understand. It was very impressive. Albert has studied Japanese so has a beginner’s command of the language. Albert told us of his roots in the Okanagan being born in Penticton after his family immigrated from Vietnam. 

Albert is an accomplished musician as stand up bass player, and was thrilled to find out his first host father plays bass as well and has plans of linking him up with a local group. Albert is also an excellent student with a 98% average in grade 11. His main interest academically is Physics. Ultimately after his schooling he would like to do Physics research somewhere in the world. 

Albert is extremely excited for his exchange to begin with the music connection and the ability to improve his Japanese, as well meeting other exchange students from all around the world. All the best Albert!
