Growing up in a Vietnamese-American household, my life always felt predetermined for me—go to school, get a degree, do more school, get a better degree, then be a dentist where the money would flow like honey.
But as I trudged through my studies, I’d always find myself—during those essential breaks—getting entranced in my favorite games and shows; being moved by the coalescent dance of music, art, and voice. This escape from reality is what I really enjoyed, and it occurred to me that I wanted to make this my own reality. I wanted to be a part of something amazing. To work with amazing people and to be able to do amazing things. I graduated with a degree in biomedical science with a perfect 4.0 GPA to prove to my parents, the world, and myself that I could, and then moved on to create my own path—as a voice actor.
