"I believe that you can go beyond survival to create opportunities when life knocks you down. You can overcome dire situations and proactively take calculated risks, making the necessary change to master your fear. I have lived through a horrific piece of history to prove that it can be done through the arduous journey of escaping Vietnam communism. We survived a war torn country, domestic violence, poverty and social isolation to move on and thrive in a foreign land. It was not easy but achievable. If a refugee like me could do it, imagine how much more you could do."
