T Ngu

“Times weren’t easy for my family when I was a child. My mother grew up in a very hard life. She was forced to drop out of school at the age of 12 to start work and eventually to take care of her 16 siblings. When the Vietnam War hit she ended up living in a refugee camp and was lucky enough to make it on a boat packed tight with people like sardines to endure little food, water, fend off pirates and survive the most harsh conditions to cross the ocean to find a better future. It took a few months before she could finally step foot on land again, but when she did she was finally able to start life all over again. “
