I am proud of who I am and, what I have managed to achieve
Emma Pham – Pham Thi Chin
I left Vietnam in 1973 as a war orphan and resided with various Australian based families. I live in Sydney Australia. I have been back to Vietnam four times. The first in 1990 and then in 1992, 1994 and the last time was in 1997.
On Being Vietnamese:
The best thing about being Vietnamese is I feel I have a common bond with the Vietnamese people around me even though I am not much a part of the Vietnamese community. I am proud of who I am and, what I have managed to achieve. I love the Vietnamese food music history and culture.
Happy To Have Achieved:
I feel that my main achievements are, being able to go back to Vietnam for the first time in 1990. It will always be a magical time for me.
I am a massage therapist: I live on my own and, had one of my poems published in a magazine in America.
I am not sure who my favourite Vietnamese person is, but, there are quite a few Vietnamese singers I like to listen to.
