Hi! My name is Tammy, I'm 18 and I'm from Austin, Texas. I currently reside in Washington, D.C. I am a student in American University's School of International Service.
My parents grew up during the Vietnam War and you could imagine the stories they have of it. My upbringing is one of the many things that inspired me to be involved in human rights. I was born in Da Nang, Vietnam and grew up in the states. I've been blessed abundantly knowing two opposite lifestyles. It's given me lots of perspective that contributes towards my interest in human rights.
As advanced as our world has become, the basic right of every human being is not being protected in many countries. There's unsafe labor conditions, human trafficking, domestic violence/abuse, ethnic cleansing, chemical weapons attacks, child detentions, the list goes on and on.
Voices For Impact is a personal project of mine that spreads awareness about human rights issues through real stories and various methods of advocacy.
