New Student Assistant: Linh My Phung

I was born on June 10, 1974 in the city of Tuy Hoa, Vietnam. My parents and I left Vietnam in late 1978 and arrived in Hong Kong in 1979. After living in Hong Kong for one year my family was sponsored by an uncle who lived in Amarillo Texas. Presently I am a senior majoring in Social Science at UC Irvine. At this moment in my life I am working on a senior honors thesis, "How the Vietnamese language influences Vietnamese Americans" with my adviser, Stephanie Reynolds, and at the same time working in the Southeast Asian Archive. I will graduate from UC Irvine this June and plan to attend the University of Southern California for a masters degree in Social Work.
