Meet Our NSR Student Editors — Bao Vang, Social Media Editor – The North Star Reports – Sponsored by The College of St. Scholastica and The Middle Ground Journal
My name is Bao Vang and I’m a sophomore at the College of Saint Scholastica. I am currently pursuing in a double major of Marketing Management. My intended graduation year is May 2017. My start date as a NSR social media editor was May 2015.
I was born and raised in Minnesota my whole life. My hometown is Brooklyn Center which is a suburb about 30 minutes away from the cities. The first time I actually traveled out of Minnesota was when I went to London in 7th grade. I always find it funny how I traveled and visited aboard before I actually traveled out of state. I am very artistic so I paint a lot during my free time. I currently have a 5×4 artwork out there in the world so I might be famous one day. I’m kidding about being famous but I do have an artwork floating out there in someone’s home. I am really interested in the international business world. For my future plans, I want to work with a company that is branched out to multiply countries. I want to travel the world while I work and help incorporate other countries’ business skills into businesses in the U.S.
Being a new member for the NSR, I hope that I will be able to bring new ideas into the NSR community. I hope to share my reviews on events I attend and events relating to my culture/traditions. Being a part of the NSR community will enhance my skills to interact with all my readers and be open to all the responses from their perspectives. I hope to teach my readers something new and in return, also learn new ideas from my readers.

The North Star Reports: Global Citizenship and Digital Literacy, The College of St. Scholastica and the scholarly Middle Ground Journal’s online learning community and outreach program with undergraduate and K-12 classes around the world. The North Star Reports has flourished since 2012. For a brief summary, please see the American Historical Association’s Perspectives on History, at:
The North Star Reports publishes edited essays from our students, particularly from those who are currently stationed, or will soon be stationed abroad. Students have reported from Mongolia, Southern China, Shanghai, northeastern China, The Netherlands, Tanzania, Ireland, England, Finland, Russia, and Haiti. We also have students developing reviews of books, documentaries, and films, and analysis of current events from around the world. We will post their dispatches, and report on their interactions with the North Star Reports students and teachers. We thank The Department of History and Politics and the School of Arts and Letters of The College of St. Scholastica for their generous financial support for The North Star Reports and The Middle Ground Journal.
