FROM HUMBLING BEGINNING TO A BRIGHT FUTURE

Feeling indebted to his parents for their courageous pursuit of a better life, Hoan vowed to ensure that one day, he would be able to take care of his parents. Hoan’s hard work took him to Malibu, California, where he attended Pepperdine University, fully engaging in the academic rigor and array of opportunities that the school offered.
STRESSED STUDENT TO SUCCESSFUL SPEAKER
