She began competing against kids from all over the world in the Callaway Junior World Golf tournaments in San Diego. “They would come to San Diego and represent their country and play in this huge tournament. At that age, that was the biggest tournament ever for that age group. I would play with people from Thailand or Mexico, and it was so foreign to me and cool to meet those people. And everybody walks with their (country’s) flag during the ceremony.”

Lilia Vu Vietnamese

As an Asian American, Vu is very proud of her family’s background and the sacrifices her grandpa made to immigrate to the U.S. after the Vietnam War in 1982.

“My grandpa would go away for a month at a time, and (my mom and her siblings) didn’t really know where he was going. And during that time, he was building a boat by himself on the side. They wouldn’t see him, and then he’d come back home and then go again. When he decided that it was a good time to go, he gathered basically the whole village and put them on the boat to escape Vietnam,” Vu said.

“They added too many people, and then the boat almost became a sinking hole. My grandpa shot his flare into the sky, hoping that someone would see him, and then luckily, an American ship was coming by and picked everybody up. This was perfect timing because the boat was sinking, and they made their way over to America after that,” she said.
