I was born in Hoa Do, Vietnam and raised in the U.S. I am the middle child among four sisters and two bothers. Much of my leadership and interaction skills originated from my involvement and volunteering within the Catholic church and eventually expanded to the hospital environment. My goal is to become a healthcare professional who interacts with patients on a personal level.
