Ahn and his family escaped Vietnam at age 2 because his uncles fought alongside ausie soldiers in the Vietnam War.
They were at sea for 5 days and 2 pirate attacks one where a kid (Ahn’s brother, Khoa do) got threatened over the edge. Lucky they eventually got picked up by a German ship but the germens said they had to be sinking so they through him an axe, to cut a hole in the boat.
When Ahn got here he was welcomed by some nuns form St Vincents. They gave his family a bunch of cloths but accidently give 1 boy outfit and 1 girl outfit, they went through so much they didn’t care so they put Ahn’s brother in the girl outfit. His uncle said his brother looked like a boy in a dress so his mum grew his hair long.
