This is the real life story of a Vietnamese-born mother, cancer survivor and advocate for mental health who has recovered from drug use, alcohol abuse, emotional dependency and self-abandonment. In this book, Cathy explores the hardships faced finding her place in the world as a child of refugees and the challenges faced growing up in a blue-collar immigrant household in the heart of gang-infested territory in Southern California. She explores in depth her struggles with addiction, lost loves and deep-seated pain. She personifies strength in her own power, finding that grace, mercy and healing can only come from true self-love.
Cathy uses her painful past to tell stories of how anyone can overcome trauma to create a brighter future for themselves – one of hope, inner peace and prosperity. As a self-proclaimed, “Multi-potentialite,” she is insatiably curious, not just about human potential and entrepreneurship, but spirituality, fitness and philanthropy. Cathy is invested in efforts that better the human condition, individually and collectively.
