Quest for Truth Inspires Evangelism
Date Published: Tuesday, Nov. 26
After finishing her first year of law school in Beijing, Vicky Sun, BA ’20, traveled to Washington, D.C., where she studied the American Constitution
for one summer at Georgetown Law School. She was intrigued by the fundamental nature
of politics, and when she expressed her desire to further her studies, one of her
professors recommended she consider UD.
With that advice, Sun’s quest for knowledge soon transformed into a higher calling:
a pursuit of “truth and happiness,” and a liberal education at the University of Dallas.
“I’m very passionate about doing the right thing,” she said. And in reading the Great
Books as an undergraduate at UD, Sun began to learn about charity, friendship and
love. “I became someone I never thought I could become,” she said.
“I belong to the church, and I’m a daughter of God.”

Sun credits her UD education with giving her the vision to see “evil and good in our
daily life.” One of her fondest memories is of her sophomore semester in Rome and
baptism in St. Peter’s Basilica. “The pursuit of happiness is not only about personal
success, but about common good … I want people to see the spirituality of our life
… and to listen to the moral teachings of the church.
Whenever faced with self-doubt or requiring patience, Sun reminds herself daily: “I
belong to the church, and I’m a daughter of God.”
“God calls us to live a righteous life,” said Sun, who remains best friends with her
freshman roommate, Madeleine Nerio, BA ’20.
