    Not All Who Wander Are Lost w/ Dr. Lily Bui

    Not All Who Wander Are Lost w/ Dr. Lily Bui

    In this conversation with a long-time friend and a perfect example of charting a path as she has lived it, I discuss with Dr. Lily Bui the wandering and winding path that took her from music, radio, hip hop dance, and most recently to completing her Ph.D. program at MIT.

    She offers a unique perspective as a first-generation Vietnamese American woman that has experienced the world as much through her career paths as much as a surfer, an artist, and ultimately a human who seeks to help people however she can.

Biased Person ,

A New Player has Joined the Game

It is not that I enjoy the suffering of others, but Hai's narration of his own struggles is entertaining. Of course, I'm a little biased. I'm a lifetime member of the club called humanity.
