This paper is a very brief account of how the author's family emigrated to America from Vietnam and how they overcame the barriers of culture shock, poverty, and stereotypes.

From the Paper:

"According to a study by the Manhattan Institute in 2008, Vietnamese Americans are among the most assimilated immigrant groups in the United States. While our rates of cultural and economic assimilation were unexceptional to other groups, our rates of civic assimilation were the highest among the large immigrant group. We are also known to be strongly involved in political processes, as we consider the United States to be our permanent home and we are strongly opposed to communism. "
