Nga Do, Class of 1998 (philosophy)

Nga Do, Class of 1996 Philosophy

Nga Do has lived a life marked by tragic circumstances and triumph. In 1988, she and her family joined the legions of "boat people" fleeing Vietnam for the refugee camps of Thailand. The family arrived in California in 1990, and 14-year-old Nga, the youngest of 10 children and speaking not a word of English, was told that she would be the first member of the family ever to go to college.
