Thuy Rocco was a child refugee from Vietnam. She arrived in the U.S. in 1984 and grew up in poverty. After learning English as a young child, she became an interpreter for her family. She was the first to go to college and completed her degree in French Literature and International Studies from Emory & Henry College. She went on to complete her masters in English at the University of Memphis. She spent over 15 years teaching and training in many different areas: English as a Second Language, cultural and diversity, technology, Tae Kwon Do and Kanban.
