Bremerton native accomplishes her dream of working in foreign affairs
"This is my favorite position," Luong said. "The work is challenging but very rewarding."
Luong received her master of arts certificates in international relations and Mandarin from Brigham Young University and John's Hopkins Nanjing Center in 2005 and earned her bachelor's degree in East Asian Studies from Western Washington University in 2003.
Before that, she graduated from Bremerton High. Her family fled from Vietnam to Bremerton in the 1980s as part of the United Nation's Orderly Departure Program, which permitted the immigration of Vietnamese to the U.S. and to other countries between 1980 and 1997.
