I came to this country as the first Hmong generation at the age of 12 years old as a refugee kid. I lived through many struggles that every immigrate and refugee had experienced before me. Lived in poverty! Being discriminated! And no one advocated for you!
Fast forward 31 years later, today, I am a medical engineer, community organizer, mentor to High School and college students, and a proud family man.
My Experience and Volunteer Work:
I have an Executive Master Business of Administration degree and bachelor’s degree in Electronic Engineering Technology. Today, I am a medical engineer at Kaiser Permanente hospital at South Sacramento and Elk Grove.
As a volunteer, I am a Regional Chair for Asian Pacific Islander America Public Affairs Association, APAPA. I oversee 7 chapters in the Central Valley that includes the Sacramento chapter and the Elk Grove chapter. Our organization’s mission is to inspire, engage and empower Asian Americans across the country.

I’ve escaped poverty, and had established myself in the position where I can utilize what I have learned from the public school system, my professional work, and the volunteer work I had done in past many years, therefore, I am ready to serve the Elk Grove Unified School District to be a better district for all of our students. I am running for Elk Grove Unified School Board of Trustees to make sure that every school in my district is great so every student will have the best chances to achieve academic success. Thank you for your support in making my vision became a reality.
