Personal Projects: Point of Entry: Nguyễn Thị Hà

“My name is Tina. In Vietnamese, Nguyễn Thị Hà. I’m 62 years old. I came here in 2011. I miss Vietnam, but I like it here. I came because all of my sons and daughters live here. Because I’m with my family, I’m ok with leaving Vietnam. For a long time, in Vietnam, I was a nurse. I didn’t work in a hospital, but in a clinic. I used to worry a lot because I took care of babies. I love children. I don’t mind working in the nail shop because I stay busy.”Nguyễn Thị HàImmigrated to Baltimore from Quảng Ngãi, Vietnam in 2011Photo by Sean ScheidtInterview by Ashley Minner, 5/15/17Baltimore, Maryland
