On his Recommendation, Dec 12, 1997, Dr. Robert M. Le Roy,
 
Vincent Pham [Pham Van Ban] has been individually responsible for developing and implements a multi-cultural and multi-lingual disaster education program. His work is resulting in a published text on disaster preparedness that will be used not only in this community but also throughout Vietnam. He has provided his personal management and service leadership experience for the Red Cross and the Vietnamese community. His highly successful experience in the initiation and development of Red Cross programs has honed his skills as a top level citizen. His extensive and multiple areas of community involvement and interaction make him a front runner in contributing to the development of any program in which he is active. Vincent enjoys challenge and has the tenacity to work and solve unexpected problems. Further, he motivates others to develop their own capacity building skills as they contribute to the overall effort of a program.

As a self-starter and professional, Vincent Pham has earned the opportunity to use his talent and display his commitment to improving the quality of life for all through your program.

As the Executive Director of this Red Cross Chapter, I have been integrally involved in community disaster preparedness. Vincent and I have worked on the goals and direction of his Vietnamese community preparedness program.


His Biography


Born Pham Van Ban on February 1, 1949, in Hai Hung, Vietnam, this man’s life has taken him from studies in law as a young man through a military career amidst a war and again into the realm of advanced studies.

After graduating from the University of Vietnam Law School in 1970, he started a military career. In 1970, he began as an Air Force Cadet and was sent to the United States for his flying training. In July 1974, he served as a fighter pilot in the 4th Air Force Division, Republic of Vietnam Air Force (VNAF).

After being downed in combat and captured, First Lieutenant Ban was sent to prison in Kien Giang on May 2, 1975. He suffered many hardships during seven years in prison camps in Vietnam. On May 2, 1982, exactly seven years after the day of his capture, he escaped from Vietnam. He repatriated himself and his family and fled by boat to a refugee camp in Thailand. During their escape from Vietnam, his twelve year old son was caught and imprisoned.

Between 1982 and 1984, he worked with the United Nations’ Save The Children Foundation in Indonesia. On August 10, 1984, Pham Van Ban and his family came to the United States and settled in Everett, Washington. Pham changed his name to Vincent Pham when he became a United States citizen in 1993 and worked to earmark money for his American education.

In the summer 1994, Vincent Pham entered Everett Community College and received an Associate of Sciences Degree in Political Science. Today, he is enrolled in the Human Services Program designed to lead to a Baccalaureate and Master degrees at Western Washington University, and at University of Phoenix. He has been accepted for the fall Doctoral of Education program at University of Washington.

Vincent’s continues his studies as he volunteers with the Red Cross. His volunteer efforts are centered on disaster preparedness for the Vietnamese community in Snohomish County. He has translated into Vietnamese and presented Red Cross materials to more than 100 fellow citizens.

His ties to his native country are ever present. He has recently completed a bi-lingual book on Hurricane Linda which brings preparedness and planning to the readers. On a personal note, Vincent’s struggles to maintain and reunite his family ongoing. This year Vincent hopes to bring his son, lost to the Communists in 1982, now married and living in Vietnam, to America. Vincent Pham’s constant efforts will result in a family reunion this summer.

Recommendation
By Morgan Livingston



Vincent Pham is very intelligent, very informed human being. His actual grades may not reflect his achievements and abilities as he has been developing his skills in verbal and written English while he has been getting his degree. He eagerly pursues projects, works well with students of all ages, classes, ethnicities and gender. He is gracious and thoughtful at all times.

Vincent does excellent class presentations; he has very sophisticated knowledge of his culture of origin in Viet Nam and shares it in ways that deepen classmates’ knowledge of their own cultures. Vincent has the inner strength to tackle almost anything, and to persevere and to motivate others in the process. I think Vincent Pham would be a great addition to your program.

As Director of Western Washington University’s Human Service Major at the Everett Education Center, I have known Vincent for two years, during his work in his junior and senior year for his Bachelor of Arts degree. I have personally had him in three of my classes to date: Cultural Awareness, Organizational Systems, and Community Systems.

I highly recommend the applicant.

    My Ideal Job

    Pham Van Ban



     
    Everything I did, I agreed to do with love. Those peoples I accepted, I accepted with love. Those I turned away or helped find alternatives. So much of the job was coming from my heart and caring for one another. Working for a humanitarian organization is as important to me as having the ideal duties.

    Daily, I could do anything to help my family. But how much is enough? Whose needs come first? Whom should I help anyway? Victims of natural disasters, senior citizens or battered children. Those close to me get an immediate hearing. I help out for all kinds of reasons; it is a matter of love.

    I am sometimes sitting alone at home and lost in self-pity, when the phone rings with a call from a police who needs a volunteer interpreter. I drive my car to be there with him or her and help people to interpret their statements. When I am done, I go home and feel with a little of sacrifice in our community; it is a matter of love.

    As an intern, part of my work was to prepare and present disaster service to our community. I have accomplished some work in translating Red Cross and Federal Emergency Management Agency information into Vietnamese and included informing the community members about the importance of disaster preparedness. In addition, I wrote a bilingual book A Memory Of Hurricane Linda last summer to provide the member with understanding and guidance about how to deal with them. I am also accomplished by attendance at all sessions of the Instructor Candidate Training, participation in task assignments and other learning activities. Therefore, my main duties should include as teaching, translating and writing.

    As an instructor, I really enjoy teaching a subject to people who want to learn. Learning, for me, can be defined as a process of change through which people acquire new knowledge, skills, or attitudes as a result of some type of study or experience. I think that learning occurs over time and should be considered a lifelong process or experience. If change of some kind does not occur, my teaching is ineffective. I often motivate students to acquire new information, remember it, and apply it. I told them that I always do the learning, and I learn best by being involved in the learning experience.

    In disaster preparedness classes, people are taught in groups and learn from reading, watching videos, observing others, listening to opinions or facts, or participating in group activities. The learning outcomes are that individuals accept change and share experiences. Within these groups, people will come with different ideas and needs. Since learning is a process of change, students may need help in accepting change.

    Generally, a student will learn and remember better when instruction fits his or her learning style. I must confess that I am not able to know my students beforehand or determine their learning preferences; however, using a variety of teaching methods that help me more closely meet different learning preferences. I like to look for ways to enhance or maintain students’ motivation to learn. Knowing each student by name and understanding each student’s reason for coming to my class that help me to be specific in referring certain ideas to a student’s situation. Give students recognition and respect by treating each as an individual and respecting each individual’s values. By doing this, I can positively influence their self-esteem and motivation for learning.

    I also like to create the mnemonic MARS (motivation, association, repetition, and senses) to help students recall the new information or the concepts of learning when they need it. Students often hear, see, and do when I teach. Especially, when I teach, the more senses I use the more I help meet students’ different learning styles.

    Student characteristics include education, reading ability, and language; experience; coordination, strength, and size; attitude; and health and physical fitness. Students often enjoy recounting their experiences once they are comfortable in the classroom setting. This can increase motivation for other students. So my teaching could be more effective if I learn as much about my students as possible before the course begins. I am constantly learning from other people’ examples and experiences; it is a matter of my ideal job.

    I am very good at interpreting an accurate idea. Each person has had a variety of experiences during his or her lifetime. For me, interpreting may be only accurate if translators know what experiences persons have to explain on as an exacting information is given. I like to consider using additional devices to promote interpreting (more audiovisuals, slower bilingual presentations) and asking frequent questions to be sure that persons talk.

    To be effective as an interpreter and translator, I like to use some skills may include careful listening, speaking clearly in a well-modulated voice, and using reinforcing body language. To sum up, my patience and flexibility to understand to persons’ speaking needs that it is an importance.

    Besides teaching and interpreting, I really enjoy writing and research. I am being alone and spend some hours per day thinking and writing. I like identifying problems and figuring out a research methodology for solving and then writing about the article. Sometime, I only see these lines of words automatically ran out on my computer-screen while I don’t know anything. After I write an article, I read it back and feel with its sound and sense. Sometime, my article with a great thought and valuable also surprises me.

    I want to work and help through a humanitarian organization. But my purpose of helping and the people who really need it sometimes seems to fall through the cracks. At this time, I think I am “one for all” and expect my writing to relieve suffering. I remember that the Gandhi’s tomb is inscribed words: “Think of the poorest person you have ever seen and ask if your next act will be of any use to him.” It flashed through my mind with a power of Gandhi when I prepare to do something for someone, keep my options open, help out here and there.

    Finally, I care only about the result and create a new way to measure the result. The organization must be effective means available.
