Jae was born in Vietnam to parents who were teachers and owners of a private high school. The family left as refugees on the ship and were robbed twice while on the ship this experience made Jae to have a lot of question however her sense of gratitude was developed while living in the refugee camps in Malaysia and the Philippines for a few years.” I recall waking up the “cockoo doodle do” of roosters outside the window to our “huts” in the camps and walking my younger brother through dirt road around the age of 4 -6 years old to attend school in the camps. I’m very grateful for this part of my life left a lasting impression on the value of giving back, family, education, and life. I was a very quiet and shy little girl with a number of fears.
Jae and her family moved to the USA after years of being in refugee camps and after arriving in the US, She goes on to say “I barely spoke in class as I considered myself an introvert just absorbing the language and learning”. Jae shied away from being in the spotlight, speaking in class or in public, making friends or even attending parties. Her path ironically lead her to become a community college professor to teach groups of adult students which required her to talk, inspire, motivate, plan, communicate, lead, and an “entertainer” on a daily basis.
