Lillian Phan Family
Lillian Phan’s mother hailed from Vietnam. She escaped communism and immigrated to the United States sponsored by a Christian organization that gave them a head start with food and shelter. They moved in hopes to build a better life with her dad and create endless opportunities for her unborn children.
Eventually, the Phans moved to Santa Clara County. Both had to overcome the language barrier and reinvent themselves. “My Dad gave up architecture and became a nuclear engineer. My mom gave up her law degree.” They also opened a French bakery, where Lillian began working at age 15.
“My parents’ experience provided a benchmark for me. They instilled in me the idea that you can achieve anything if you work hard enough. Their approach to education was not if we would go to college, but where.” And that was not an easy goal. “My parents had three kids in college at the same time. In order for me to succeed, I had to work. It was not a choice, just part of my life.”
In May 2021, she posted, “I’m a proud first-generation Asian-American and grateful for my hybrid heritage. as a new mother, I look forward to sharing both my Asian cultural traditions and American ideals with my daughter.”
