The legacy of Johnson Nguyen
Before Johnson Nguyen was born, his family immigrated to Canada from Vietnam in the mid 1970s following the Vietnam war. His father learned English early on, and as such was able to adjust to Canadian life easily, while his mother struggled to grasp the language, making communication difficult at times. Nevertheless, the family overcame their struggles. Johnson’s parents followed their dream of coming to Canada by risking everything to provide a better life for their children. The values of setting goals and working hard to achieve them were instilled in Johnson Nguyen.
While Johnson was in his youth, his father worked in investment management. As such, the family frequently travelled. Through this, Johnson Nguyen developed a love for travel and the foods that are paramount to the places he’s visited.
