Deepening Understanding & Appreciation of Chinese-Vietnamese Heritage in North America.
Focusing on Chinese-Vietnamese refugee stories, family relationships, and bridging generational gaps.
I am a second generation Chinese Canadian who is on the journey of learning and connecting more deeply with my heritage and family.
I was born and raised in Canada - while both of my parents were born and raised in Vietnam. Both sides of my family are ethnically Chinese however, since my parents and their families grew up in Vietnam, they resonate with both Chinese and Vietnamese customs. In the late 1970’s, our families became one of hundreds of thousands fleeing Vietnam as refugee boat people.
My goal is to hopefully share and encourage the documentation, and participation in these important stories, conversations and connections that work to heal and strengthen our families.
This is a life-long journey, and I hope you will join me!
