Storytellers is kicking off a new series of videos produced by members of Nashville’s vibrant immigrant community! In the coming weeks, you can look forward to stories from Burmese refugees who are part of Tennessee Foreign Language Institute’s ESL TO GO program as well as stories from students at two of Metro’s most diverse high schools — Overton and Antioch.

The first story in this new series comes from Tennessee Foreign Language Institute’s, Thuy Rocco. Today, Thuy is the Assistant ESL Director at TFLI. Her journey, however, began in Vietnam more than 25 years ago. It’s the story of a mother’s hope, a child’s potential and a family’s perseverance. Thank you for sharing, Thuy!
