I'm proud of Thouni Seneyakone, whom I first met 4 years ago when we all worked together to make the National Lao American Writers Summit happen. It's great to see her sharing her voice and perspective with the community, especially on an issue that has so much meaning to so many of us. I look forward to seeing more from her in the future.
She's currently working to put an end to human trafficking, an issue that's very difficult to address in Laos for a number of reasons. You can read about her story "Minneapolis Lao-American fights human trafficking in Laos" thanks to Ibrahim Hirsi.
