Working with you to make
the change to break the mold!
Lea Tran is an ethnic Chinese, former "Boat person" refugee from Vietnam. A Villanova University graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry, a female scientist, turned successful entrepreneur and business owner in the
Greater Philadelphia Region, where she called
home for thirty-five years.
Lea had brought her story to the TEDx stage and then revealed her harrowing boat journey in her first book,
"I Did Not Miss the Boat- Memoir of a Vietnam Hoa Refugee." She delivers her powerful message of courage and hope during challenging times in her keynote speeches to inspire her audience to find opportunities in the midst of adversity. She has broken more than one glass ceiling and continues to do so with the God-given privilege of being an American citizen.
From having the "refugee" stigma, Lea morphed to a chemist who synthesized the compound that became a cocktail drug to treat HIV-AIDS in 1998. A successful creative business owner who created luxury
custom drapery for countless homes in the
Mainline area from 2005-2015.
Extracting from her multi-faceted cultural and life experiences, Lea motivates her audience to bridge the gaps of cultural differences, to take action to break the mold of generational sufferings, and to create
their own opportunity to thrive.
"May you never miss the boat of happiness in your life!
Be brave, jump off the sinking ship!"
