The Changing Face of Politics — Cyndi Nguyen Breaking Barriers in the South

WGRL has a sisterhood with the great city of New Orleans, so we were inspired to learn that Cyndi Nguyen became the first Asian American to earn a seat on the New Orleans City Council!

We caught up with Councilwoman Nguyen on our last trip to New Orleans where she graciously spent some time with our young reporters discussing her journey from Vietnamese immigrant to community leader and some of the things she plans to do to improve her community.

It’s an inspiring story that energizes us to seek even more diversity in the faces of those who represent us.
