Emily Nguyen, originally from Vietnam, immigrated to the United States when she was 19 years old. After beginning her college education at Richland College in Richardson, she moved to Marshall and applied to Panola College.

Nguyen’s goal is to complete her prerequisites and apply to the Panola College nursing program. With that goal in mind, Nguyen supports herself by working at a nail salon in Marshall.

“My boyfriend lives here, so I wanted to move to Marshall with my boyfriend. I had to go to work to make money to take care of myself. I work and study hard, and rarely take time for a break. After work, I do my homework for school,” she says.

Nguyen has a soft heart. She gives money to homeless people. When asked if she was afraid of being cheated, she said no. Because she is a nice person, she wants to help all the poor in the world, she explains.

When she is not working or studying, Nguyen likes to cook Vietnamese food, especially potato fried with beef. She likes listening to music and watching Korean movies.
