Early Life

Adam Pham was born in 1966 in Hanoi, Vietnam, a child of war in a Communist country.  His maternal grandfather, who was Polish-French, had to leave Vietnam, to return to France.  With the Communist victory in Vietnam, Adam’s paternal grandfather was imprisoned as an “Enemy of the State”, and Adam’s family lost everything, making life a daily struggle.  Not only was it hard to find basic necessities, but Adam’s family also had to avoid the punishments of a repressive regime.
