Hi, I’m Vo Nguyen, underwriter turned math teacher. In a series of Q&A video blogs, I’d like to share my journey with you about how and why I got involved with The Actuarial Foundation’s Modeling the Future Challenge. Here’s a link to Part 1 of the series if you missed it.

What sparked your interest in the Modeling the Future Challenge (and specifically, the Underserved Engagement Initiative and trainings)?

I studied to be an actuary in college and thought this would be a cool opportunity to teach more practical math to my students and help them understand math at a deeper level. Additionally, the framework of how MTFC is built makes it easy for me and for my students to participate.
