“I feel blessed to be able to give back to children. I have seen that through proper guidance, schooling, love and motivation, all of my children blossomed into brilliant young people. Children just need a caring, attentive environment to develop into strong, contributing members of society. I want to continue to highlight this philosophy through my platform and the S.A.M. Foundation,” Nguyen said.
These monumental experiences have allowed her to develop her business acumen and establish non-profit organizations that advance her personal platform of community service and finding homes for children.
