I'm a Chinese-Vietnamese-American living in San Diego, Calif. Currently a political editor and writer for the San Diego News Network and a volunteer-English-teacher to refugee children. I also serve on the board of directors for Rolling Readers USA and am the president of the Asian American Journalists Association in San Diego. For anyone that has a story idea regarding American immigrants, minorities or any links, please feel free to send them my way.
