Thach recently visited the Northwest Asian Weekly office, trying to gain support for Helping Link, a social service agency that helps Vietnamese refugees and immigrants.
A successful real estate mogul, Thach may be young, but he’s a role model in the Vietnamese community. He possesses many rare gifts, like being a dynamic speaker, a generous contributor to many causes, and a man who is unafraid to speak his mind. When he speaks, his strong emotions come through in his messages, which are inspiring and fun to listen to.
What I like about Thach is his honesty. He shared his insights on why Asian Americans give, and fame is one of the reasons.
I asked him, “Do you like fame?” Many would deny this even as they say “yes” in their heart. Does this sounds familiar to you?
Thach, however, said yes. I have known Thach for five years and have seen him support causes that get little recognition simply because the causes were important.
Having an ego is one thing, but it can easily be suppressed by the right values and wanting to do good for the community. Thach believes in doing the right thing.
