The prestigious honor has been commissioned to such distinguished leaders as President Bill Clinton, President Ronald Reagan, President George Bush, President Johnson, Prime Minister Winston Churchill and America’s first person in space, John Glenn.

As a Vietnamese refugee (baby) fleeing Vietnam after the war, she is very grateful for all the opportunities that the global leaders and community have offered her. Her family first migrated from China to Vietnam, and then a generation later risked their lives to reach Malaysia from Vietnam on their family boat after the war. They were blessed to receive refugee status in Australia and expanded internationally thereafter.

At each transition, it was necessary to ‘re-build’ part of their lives and businesses. Whilst it was challenging initially, this later became an asset for the globalization of her work, businesses and lifestyle. Her peers and colleagues now ‘witness the business acumen, strategic vision and networking expertise she brings to her clients.’ (Todd Moster – Attorney & Author)
