She refined her Vietnamese language skills by co-founding Club O' Noodles, a pioneering Vietnamese American theatre troupe; curating multi-art and history exhibitions; co-founding the Vietnamese International Film Festival (Viet Film Fest), which showcases films from around the world; and co-authoring a photo-history book, Vietnamese in Orange County.
