I really enjoyed talking with Yoomie and hearing her story. Coming to the US as a refugee from Vietnam, it was interesting to hear about her experiences growing up as an immigrant in the mid-West. I liked how determined and driven she was, and her story really epitomizes the idea of the “American Dream.” For Yoomie, joining the Peace Corps was a way to give back to a country that had afforded her so many opportunities, and also to help people in other countries who may not have the same opportunities as her. What an inspiring story!
