A Harrowing Escape from Vietnam to America’s Shores – Then the Work Really Began

San Francisco – Arriving, and arriving, and arriving, a never-ending journey of arriving as she clears unexpected obstacles that might slow her down.

Author Hang Black, in her amazing book Embrace Your Edge, has documented her journey from “… refugee to immigrant to corporate success …” as in the words of Carla Harris, author of Expect to Win and Strategize to Win.  

In this impressive work, Ms. Black has weaved her personal story through those harrowing days of her family’s escape from Vietnam as Saigon was falling, to the corporate boardrooms. Your heart stops as she, a tiny toddler, is thrown from the dock to a stranger on the ship who catches her by ‘one chubby little hand.’ Her journey is infused with the grit and determination her mother showed that day on the dock, which Hang carries forward as an immigrant into the corporate world as she struggles to recognize, and eventually, overcome biases. 

After traveling through the darkest nights, paving her way to growth, Hang Thi Yang Black shares a glimpse of the limitless battle to break the generic formulas to unleash her wings to capture the throne of a tenacious mother, the Silicon Valley leader instilled with skills, courage, and will. Through this piece, she attempts to inspire the world to conquer their dreams and channel them into powerful resources and networks.

She shares her story to inspire immigrant women as they face professional hurdles that affect their personal lives, and personal hurdles that impact their careers. Throughout, she encourages us to embrace our uniqueness. To hold our head high, find our voice, and move forward. With three decades of experience, she delivers masterpieces to uplift the dignity and authenticity of humans.

Ms. Black, a seasoned technology leader with expertise in sales enablement, marketing and engineering and Vice President of Global Revenue Enablement at Juniper Networks, writes, “My hope is that women who have been unseen, and minorities who have been unheard, feel empowered to celebrate their unique identity.”
