In honor of World Refugee Day, we have a special guest blog from Theresa Q. Tran, Executive Director of Asian & Pacific Islander American Vote - Michigan. Here is her powerful and inspiring story: I grew up in a family that embodied the American Dream. But I knew very clearly, even at a young age, that my family was different. Both my parents spoke with accents that sounded much different than most other parents in our Waterford, MI neighborhood. They also kept to themselves but their personalities shone when we were with other Vietnamese families.
