What Is Bao Tranchi Ethnicity?
Bao Tranchi flaunts Vietnamese-America ethnicity.
She was the youngest of 9 children born in Vietnam. Sadly, all their homes, land, and possessions were taken away from them, and they had no choice but to leave and become refugees and immigrants. Thus, Bao and her family came to America.
But unlike many, Bao’s loud and proud about being a refugee. Infact, she believed America was built on Immigrants looking for a better life and to build their dreams. “I hope to represent what an Immigrant looks like and to showcase what can happen when Humans help other humans in times of need, and the difference and impact it can make,” she said.
Bao Tranchi Family
Bao Tranchi comes from a family of 11 — her parents, Hughs Tranchi and Van Tranchi, herself, and her 8 siblings.
According to her, her dad and mom were married in 1959 and have already celebrated over 5 decades of marriage. They sacrificed their own lives and country to immigrate to a new foreign country just to allow their children to have their dreams. And for this, Bao feels like she can never thank them enough.
“They came to America with nothing, not speaking a word of English, and worked jobs that most Americans wouldn’t. They worked endlessly until retirement just for the promise of their children’s happiness. I am beyond indebted and forever Thankful for the Love and support and sacrifice of my Parents,” she explained.
