Resilience of NSC Graduate Inspires Campus Community

Phuong Dinh

Phuong Dinh has long dreamed of walking across the stage at her college commencement—even when she wasn’t sure she’d ever be able to walk again. On September 24, 2015—just days before starting at North Seattle College—Phuong was in a bus accident that killed five of her classmates and left her and others severely injured. Phuong endured numerous surgeries and spent a year in a rehabilitation center. Despite what she experienced, Phuong never once considered giving up her academic pursuits.
