As a second-generation Vietnamese American, Jerry La has some experience with the trials of being a part of a culture that was brought to the United States because of a violent catalyst: the Vietnam War. He speaks about how his parents approached surviving after leaving everything they knew behind. “If you dwell in the past, you get nowhere.”
Hear his powerful story, in a video for Media Arts Center.
