Tracy Nguyen was born and raised in San Jose, California. Growing up with refugee parents from Vietnam largely defines who she is today: a driven community organizer with a creative, entrepreneurial spirit. She received a BA in Media Studies and Ethnic Studies from UC Berkeley, which seeded her activist journey. Since graduating, she has worked within the nonprofit sector to uplift the voices and power of refugees, immigrants, workers, women, youth, the LGBTQ community, and incarcerated individuals. With her passion for visual storytelling, she recently started freelancing in film making and graphic facilitation.
