The main emphasis of “Here and There” is to create a connection between my personal experience with coming to the U.S. and the experience of other Vietnamese immigrants in order to describe “hope” in a visual narrative. My story is not just about immigrating to the U.S. or about the war in Vietnam. It’s not about how we see ourselves as foreigners living in different soil. It’s about hope; our hope for a new home, a better life and embracing family.
