My Family3:05:00 PM
Home is where the heart is, and that's where my heart will always be. Having my own family, I truly understand the concept of family and how precious and valuable my family is. I never lost that concept, but makes me even more appreciative of my parents and siblings. Being home for a week with my family definitely warm my heart after two years being away from home. I am forever grateful of them and love them all to pieces!

My oldest sister
My youngest sister who is a fashion journalist for 605magazine back in South Dakota. I just want to share what she wrote about my dad.
Broken at so many times, obstacles from the Vietnam war, my dad had the path of death ahead of him when he was captured an imprisioned fromt the War, had two options. 1. Die. 2. or try to wait and live and hopefully the war will be over. (little hope)
Anyways, my family came with a dream, America. A land of opportunities. I wasn't born yet. Still in my Mommy's tummy. I didn't know that in my mom's tummy that what I was going to face was a life that most people back in my country would die for. I want to keep this short, but I could literally write a novel about my parents.
They came from nothing, aboslutely nothing.
Wanted to give their children a home, food, and education.
Growing up, I didn't understand.. I was born and raised in SD, not a lot of asians. "Why can't I be white like all the other kids." Didn't fit in and didnt' want to do anything with my culture.
I laugh now, I am so grateful to have my strong Vietnamese culture, so BLESSED.
Anyways, back to my parents, they had nothing, gave up everything for their children. ABSOLUTE everything for their kids. My parents are getting old and sick, still working.. 65, and 70, but why? because I'm in college. That's why I have mulitple jobs, "RETIRE MOM AND DAD, I'M FINE!" This simply showcases that my life growing up was the best ever because not of my material things, but rather parents who simplied just ... loved me.
My inspiration in life. My heros. I will always, ALWAYS, love them and to one day.. One day.. look at an audience crowd and share my story.
