Scope/Content: This is an oral history of Nam Quan Nguyen, born in 1974 in Qui Nhon, Vietnam. Although Nam Quan was only a child during the Vietnam War, the war greatly affected him. He left Vietnam in 1994 with his immediate family to the United States through the Humanitarian Operation to start a new life at the age of 20. He discusses his experience and his struggles with assimilating into a new society and how he feels about the Vietnamese community in Orange County and Vietnam. He majored in Computer Engineering at the University of California, Irvine. His current occupation is in real estate as a broker. He currently lives in Midway, California with his wife and daughter.
Scope/Content: This recording is from the Vietnamese American Experience Class Oral Histories, 2014 Spring subcollection.
