I am from South Viet Nam, a refugee.

My father originally is Chinese. My Mother is Vietnamese.

As I was 2, very sick about to die, my mother placed a cross over my neck to pass the church door for saving life. The medicine was very rare those days, 1960. Jesus Christ saved my life once upon a time. The cross is the passion.

I was baptized in 1978, Easter in the convent of Can Tho, Viet Nam.

I was pursued to be a nun, but that was unsuccessful.

I prayed to God giving me a good family life.

I have 3 children, son 19, daughters 17,9.

I speak and write good Vietnamese, read and write fair French also.

I can translate Engish documents into Vietnamese, a clarification to read as a translation.

My Vietnamese name is Tran Thi Nhu Thuy.

I am naturalized as Marie Pascale Tran after my baptized name.

I have experiences as a mathematician, wife, mother, active parishioner, Cursillista, Catechist, Children Liturger, prayer minister, and re-new group leader, and serves as an editor of the Ultreya Newsletter of San Jose Cursillo.

Love note: God's gifts are for gifting and God's love is for loving. Sometimes I sit and stare at the Cross. All the time, I wear the garnet Cross.
