Inspirational Women

5-13-18: Sharon Orlopp, Thuhang Tran,

In “Standing Up After Saigon”, Sharon Orlopp documents the story of a young Vietnamese girl born during the Vietnam War, afflicted with polio at a young age, and there was no medical help available because of the communist takeover of the south. Thuhang Tran still had an amazing and hopeful outlook, spent her youth scooting across floors, but yet was determined to go to school. The family was finally able to emigrate to the US, to reunite with a father they thought had died at the end of the war. It’s a powerful story of family, will, hope, and inspiration.
