Episode 1 – Chau (Vietnam)

Chau’s parents immigrated to the United States from Vietnam as refugees with their four young children. Chau was later born in a refugee camp in Indonesia, and they made their way to the United States when she was still a baby.  Although her parents had their ideas of what success meant for their children, Chau did not follow that path.  Instead, she’s pursued her passion as a stand-up comic, became a big sister with the Big Brother Big Sister program, and now works for a non-profit in Texas that helps children across the state.  Not only did she pave her own way while breaking the typical Asian stereotype, Chau has created her own happiness and community where she can thrive and grow, in ways that may have been cut short if her parents did not instill the lesson of perseverance within her.
