From Vietnam to White Earth
WHITE EARTH - Long Nguyen says he is finally comfortable enough to tell his life story, and hopefully inspire others in the process.
"I look back and say 'My God, I did it,'" he said Monday from the White Earth Health Center. He is working with a two-week program as a dentist through the Indian Health Services program.
But his journey began long before his time in Minnesota. Nguyen was born in Saigon, Vietnam, in 1974, the youngest of eight children.
