LeiChandra Truong is a Vietnamese-American writer who likes to reflect on her experiences. She grew up in Southern California and is now in Vancouver, BC after teaching English in South Korea and Vietnam from 2008-2011. While in Vietnam, she met people who told her about Vietnamese culture and history, the Vietnam war, and the current state of the country. LeiChandra’s project is a collection of stories from people she meets who have a connection to Vietnam in addition to her own story. She hopes that in telling these stories, she as well as others can come to terms with their past and find healing.
