My mum told me a very special story that started in Vietnam… It all began when the north of Vietnam wanted Vietnam to be one country and the south of Vietnam didn't because they didn't want the same things. For example, the north of Vietnam wanted to be a communist county and the south of Vietnam didn't so that caused a war. Ong (my mum's dad) decided to work with the American army. But here's a sad bit :-( Ong was sent to jail!!! He was stuck there for one year! )Luckily he was free from jail, but not from the war. Ong was worried after the war and the north Vietnamese won that my mum and her brothers and sisters wouldn't have a good life in Vietnam, so they went on a boat to Thailand and took the quickest route but it was also dangerous. There wasn't a lot of food but a lot of people threw up and some people died. Then they were able to go to Australia. My mum was four years old. We are back where everything started in Phan Thiet in Vietnam. I have met all my mum's aunties, uncles, cousins and second cousins. I can't understand them so I ask mum to speak. It's a bit weird listening to my mum speak Vietnamese because it doesn't sound like English. Sam copies words and is funny.
8 years old, I like to create and make things. I make up great jokes and love to read!
