I first met Thuy Khuu in 2006 when she took my Social Justice class at Saint Louis University. Born in Vietnam, she moved to the US at the age of eight with her parents, sister and brother. Beginning in that class, she has inspired me with her creativity, depth, and bravery. Though she doesn’t get back to St. Louis very often, when she does we typically meet up at some cafe. I also appreciate the presence she is able to radiate on a Zoom call from time to time.
