Nine bánh mì sandwiches, two candlelight vigils, plenty of sunshine and one broken lamp later, spring break has come to an end.

On a brighter note, KASCON, the largest and oldest ethnic student conference in the country, took place at Yale this weekend, with hundreds of students from college campuses across the country attending the annual event. I missed most of Friday's events due to a flight delay, but I had the opportunity on Saturday to hear from keynote speaker Senator Paull Shin, whose story is truly inspiring. I also attended a thought-provoking seminar led by Michelle Milee Chang, the founder and CEO of non-profit organization Ambassadors for Sustained Health (ASH).

Kudos to the KASCON XXV executive board at Yale for organizing a successful conference!
