With the help of a Catholic Church, my parents fled communist Laos to a place only they saw in their dream, the United States of America. It was a country built on three of the most powerful words in our United States Constitution, “We the People“.
I grew up the second youngest of nine children living in the McDonough Projects in St. Paul, MN. My parents were always hard working folks, overcoming obstacles and language barriers to succeed in the United States, the land of opportunity.
There was one lesson my parents always reminded us children, “it was America that gave us a chance. When you get older, you should give back to the community“. In 2013, I decided to become a youth minister at Immanuel Assembly of God.
When I told my parents that I was going to run for House of Representative for the great State of Minnesota, they said “it is only in this country that there are no limits to one’s success“.
