Thuy Nguyen

Thuy Nguyen was the youngest in her family. When she escaped Vietnam with her brother and sister, she quickly adapted to her new life in Australia.

So when you got thrown into a situation that you have to fend for yourself, no one is there, mum is not there my sister she had to struggle with her problem as well like she had to learn so you’re there, you don’t do it, nobody can help you. With that attitude I said well, look I get a job, and I just have to work my way through it and that’s what I did and that’s what I have been doing.
