House of Sticks w/ Ly Ky Tran

Trigger Warning: Content will include topics on PTSD / intergenerational trauma

(S6, EP 6) Ly Ky Tran, Viet-American millennial based out of NYC, and author of her recently released memoir, "House of Sticks" joined me for this week's episode.  We talked back in late June as she was promoting her debut memoir.  We discussed about her parents' trauma from the Vietnam War and how it affected her relationship with them and her siblings growing up.  In the wake of the Atlanta shooting, Ly shared her own experiences with racism and misogyny violence working at her mom's nail salon.  Through her experience, she learned to deepen her connection and compassion with her family, and with herself.  Don't forget to grab a copy of "House of Sticks" available everywhere (check your local bookstore) after listening to this episode!
