Born in Saigon, Vietnam, I came to the United States in 1975 with my family after the war. Our family was sponsored by a church group to come to Woodinville, Washington and received charitable help with housing and employment. I am a graduate of the University of Washington who received financial assistance from tuition scholarships. After over a decade pursuing my career, I became a homemaker and reside in Bellevue, Washington with my husband and two kids. I have been very lucky in life and owe much of my good fortune to the kindness of others. I hope give back what I have been blessed enough to receive.
