Mimi Nguyen (BA, Sociology)

As a daughter of two former refugees, Mimi Nguyen bears witness to the disconnect within her Việt Kiều community. She later pursued an education in Sociology to strengthen her understandings of the social constraints found in diasporic communities. In the middle of her degree, Mimi was fortunate enough to find home in ACAM where she has been able to incorporate her creativity with academia. She hopes to expand her work from ACAM to help build connections and provide forms of advocacy for her own and other diasporic communities.
