LANETT — Tuong “Catherine” Tran moved to America from Vietnam last year as a shy teenager who didn’t open up to others often. “At first, it was hard because I was not very good at English,” Tran said. “No one spoke to me in my own language either. I kind of stayed by myself, alone and I missed [my friends and family in Vietnam].”
