Description
Oral history with Patricia Nguyen. She was born on September 21, 1982, at the University of California, San Diego. She identifies as Asian American but socio-politically as Vietnamese American. She is a space maker for change creators. Patricia’s parents were college students when Saigon fell. Her grandfather was a part of the US military and was sent to Georgetown for reeducation and was able to obtain a diploma. Higher education to her family was a way of not means of life but understanding who they were as people. After graduating from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in Cellular and Developmental Biology, she went to graduate school at the University of Vermont and received her Masters of Education. She was Assistant Dean of Students at Cornell University, being brought in to build an Asian American center for the college.
