It's a the little I know.

Listen those either listening today this is this is facets, it really is. So where you are listening from you and enjoy the so Nancy, what, where you're from and and how did you get here to the United States a summer that I think you sound that you have any lasting Tyler left yeah my dad was in more and when ending. He sat in their people cc stories in history about people escaping by Bell. My parents were those people got an 9 foot window while 40+ refugees, and they just that we got a cow. While labor dizygotic out yeah they floated five days in the ocean.

Oh my goodness. Not sure which direction diesel mechanic by trade. Therefore, they help have boats and the Philippines while the airline inherent correctly is the US.

They are also Danny helped her about my mom and me in the Philippines. Okay, I'm not sure where my birth certificate moron and Philippines looking up a technology center.

Now I was born there and learn all that I can well St. Raphael church appeared in Paul's new sponsors to America are you kidding me while I'm still very close to that her son actually did my writing for the part that her father part and they are still here family-style here. That led me.

My parents have a six weeks old arty airport came here with my little red suitcase. We still have it and I remember them telling me they gave my parents a box of uncle Ben's rice 90 means making in this box will coming to America story.

We grew up here and we slept on floors before I could even get a career and living in this park on Burbach here near changing me because I drive by still remember my bike trail place. I fouled the pool really good memories of growing up in the trailer park in Buffalo relative to well what what a fascinating Vietnamese then flee basically to the Philippines and don't run away and up here in the United States at six weeks old, said six weeks old so you basically grew up here in the Raleigh area switch schools you did you go to Raleigh. As you can get a good night elementary through elementary carnage. Not all diversity Carolinas you can get. Then we went to the same three schools are the same buses and I never knew well. So, how did you actually meet your husband. Then in so you probably knew of him or something.

The word, what did you guys meet officially fish limited stock really okay dear one day I'd already gone to Chicago did grad school and came back to me. He said, scratching my head thinking. Not quite sure launched his business and I'm not sure we have time even talk that somehow I caught my eye and we had one date to Cosco my glasses on our first date. Yes, I can see when I get up to one Cosco and I was that month. They were married years later in two babies later.

What a great great great day Cosco so I get my closet so tell me Nancy how does how does a girl from overseas come here with very humble beginnings and up in beauty pageants and high school. My mom went to Vietnam to visit indigo often think about my family and my mom is away modeling school. Mind you, here's a girl with very crooked teeth unibrow acne face walked to the hunchback and he modeling school and me.

Sure, the Monza waste and negotiate when you called me. She came back she said are you guys doing modeling school is great because Emily perfect 95 pound cadre and modeling is not going to be my client probably at that time the land is most interested in my speaking skills and walking straight.

I was like in the hunchback I didn't have the confidence to stand straight up and after year modeling school in India model tends into my first pageant in the junior team Raleigh kidding I won this overall photogenic picture from carnage. Okay, let's go to Florida for my first national junior team pageant.

All this means that this is so much fun and meet friends for life, and I realize that pedantry is all about service you going to pageants because you have something that means something to you and it's usually something philanthropic and you get to bring it to the charges and if you really brings a lot of light to your project, the heart of pageantry service. That's fantastic and so how many pages have you one. I don't now I would say that I won congeniality six times on the floor. Really, the love and oneness corporate America. Okay, let's talk about that as you read a book okay this corporate America like that. It was during my rain I never use that you know that what I was writing through my array is so normal.

Normal world what what with your minions kingdom go in your is awesome. So 2011.

This corporate is this corporate America right you want to hold the whole Homer you you ruled the country in 2011 for this. That's pretty, that's what she is and there's different businesses they made to Josh Carolina pageant will figure pageant is rodeo. There's all kind. So right before this corporate America. I actually was hit by a car outside my store and had a broken collarbone. Well weeks praying thing really hurts.

I don't know what you pay attention to by thinking about this had a broken collarbone. I can't do pageant and that time in your stealing a bone you hear God like regular please let the market so he let pageant had so much fun. I represented North Carolina and as Ms. corporate America.

It while it's pretty fascinating and so it's it's hard to keep up with you in a good way you did good on so many just drop them in there like the silly things on talking about like it's pretty festering so you have a you have a leadership MBA is a registered as well as a graduate from NC State/wait a second, fastest-growing Spanish speaking county United States and it's a nice beautiful language of your major was Spanish.
