Kudos for your article on Cao Nguyen (“Found in Translation,” winter 2010-2011).

Kudos for your article on Cao Nguyen (“Found in Translation,” winter 2010-2011). As a Vietnamese-American and a 1999 graduate of Nebraska Wesleyan, I am extremely proud of his accomplishments. He serves as an inspiration to the entire college and Nebraska community.

I was humbled by his story, which was so well told, and appreciated that Nebraska Wesleyan was compelled to tell the story of so many Vietnamese-Americans through Cao. I cut out Cao’s article and it hangs in my office as a reminder of such triumph and grace. I am extremely pleased to see such a wonderful story during a time when minorities are portrayed in the media with violence and disgrace.

Great work and congrats to Cao!
