Tell us about your background: Where are you from, and what attracted you to the world of engineering or STEM?
I am a first-generation immigrant from Vietnam and arrived in the US as a refugee in 1975 with my parents and my younger brother. We came to the US with very few personal possessions. Through hard work, my parents were able to build a new life for our family. When I was six years old, I took apart a musical bell to figure out how it worked and successfully put it back together. I didn’t know then, but that was the first spark. The summer after my sophomore year in high school, I attended a STEM program that opened my eyes to a whole new world. I met people who were scientists and engineers and loved math and science just like me. They were applying their love of STEM to make an impact in the world which inspired me to want to do the same. That summer, I decided to pursue engineering as a career. I went on to earn a Bachelor of Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology and a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University. When I left Vietnam on a Lockheed C-130, I did not know that years later, I would work for the same company that built that plane.
