The Vietnamese war was just ending. The country barely holding itself together
Previous Boat people citizen
Hi, I'm Tracey Nguyen Mang. I was a post- war baby. I was only 3 when my story began...
The boat people "phenomenon"went from 1975 - 1992

I'm the youngest of 7 kids
The government only knew how to unify the country using brutal punishments :(
My mum decided it wasn't safe to stay here...
And that’s when my (Tracey’s)life changed. It was put in danger in hope of a better one. Risking everything we had without being sure we would get anything in return. I was young, I was confused, I put my entire life in danger without even knowing.- (from the perspective of)Tracey Nguyen Mang
