Mylinh: Resilient, Resourceful, Rejoicing

Mar 1, 2023

In 1979 Mylinh Luong left communist Vietnam with her father, mother, and four siblings in a crowded fishing boat.

She was six years old. She vividly recalls the deprivation, squalor, and brutality of the journey and life in a Malaysian refugee camp.

She knows what it is to be without resources, education, family, and friends.

In the US, she experienced acts of kindness that helped her overcome the lack of these things.

Now a successful businesswoman, she puts her knowledge into practice by helping and supporting other immigrants in a big way.
