Show Notes

On today’s episode, we’re heading into Part 2 of our interview with Hung Le. If you listened to last week’s episode, you know that Hung Le is an Associate VP and head of the Registrar’s office at Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA. Episode 14 and this episode are about Hung’s totally amazing story of his journey to America as an 11-year-old refugee from South Vietnam at the end of the Vietnam war, and the many hurdles he overcame. As Hung shares his inspirational story, you’ll hear how GRATITUDE became a central theme in his approach to life.
Today Hung and Kelly discuss the recent fatal wildfires in Southern California that nearly burned all of Malibu down, and the simultaneous mass shooting that occurred at a college student hangout in Thousand Oaks, just a few miles from the Pepperdine Campus. A beloved Pepperdine freshman lost her life in the shooting tragedy. Hung and his wife Corinne, and many executives in the University’s leadership were instrumental in caring for a very hurting community and the parents of the young student, Alaina Housley, who lost her life. You’ll hear Hung’s take on life when bad things happen to good people – he was right on the front lines there at Pepperdine.

“It was my job to continue the family name. Even at 11-years-old, I knew what that meant. I knew there was a chance that I would never see them again.” — Hung Le [0:10:13.1]

“With the bombs dropping all around us, we didn’t know who would live, who would die.” — Hung Le [0:10:23.1]

“I came to Pepperdine looking for a great education. What I found here, was a family.” — Hung Le [0:15:41.1]
