A very good interview of a creative and successful Overseas Vietnamese, Sahra Vang Nguyen. Nguyen produced the documentary, Deported, and currently co-owns a Vietnamese restaurant. This interview looks at her creative side.
Sahra Vang Nguyen is a woman on a mission. Stemming from a childhood interest in drawing, her visual arts passion has blossomed into an illustrious career in film media, spoken word, and entrepreneurship. Growing up as the daughter of Vietnamese refugees in Boston, Nguyen cultivated her voice with the help of mentors to form her own path.
Following a 10-year run as a spoken word artist and community organizer, Sahra switched gears to filming documentaries under her production company, One Ounce Gold LLC. Her works attracted the attention of NBC News where she created and produced Self Starters, a series that highlighted Asian Americans with unique stories of trials and success. She then went on to produce her latest work under NBC news, Deported, a five-part series that follows the story of deportation in the Cambodian-American community. Source: Hybebae.
