I am the second daughter of two Vietnamese refugees who have resettled in the United States. While we’ll never fully know the complexities of our parents’ struggles, I’m going to share and appreciate what I do know. Throughout the years, they’ve shared stories with me. More recently, I’ve had formal sit-downs with them to delve out more details. So, this is the beginning of a legacy project to preserve the history of my family, and to understand the bridge that makes our family Vietnamese American.
More to come…!
