Vivien Bui

KIPP Northern California Public Schools

Vivien is a founder and graduate of KIPP Navigate College Prep, joining the 2026 class at the University of California, Irvine, hoping to pursue a degree in Film and Media Studies. Growing up in a society chock-full of harmful and offensive stereotypes about Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in popular media, Vivien is passionate about diversifying television and cinema to include more positive and inclusive portrayals of the Asian-American experience. In high school, Vivien served as captain of the Robotics Team and vice president of her school’s ASB senior year. She collaborated with different nonprofit ventures to support causes like children’s education and ending human trafficking. Outside of class, she likes to edit videos, dance, and watch film studies.
