Her family escaped war-torn Vietnam by fishing boat at the fall of Saigon in 1975. The dangerous and fear-filled days off the Vietnamese coast eventually led Thuy and her family to the Philippines, Guam, and Fort Chaffee, Arkansas. From there the amazing generosity of Saint Edwards parish brought the family to Waterloo, Iowa where Thuy learned English, went to high school, and became very well adapted to the US. Thuy graduated from the University of Tulsa with a degree in MIS, and still follows the Golden Hurricane basketball and football teams.
