As a title, Thu comes before the other half of your Vietnamese name. Thu is the root from my mother country, the origin of my history, it is a part of who I am. It is the base that I am forever building on, because without the knowledge of where I come from, I wouldn't be the person I am today. My roots define me. When translated into Vietnamese, Thu means autumn, the season between summer and winter. Your autumn years are the rest of your life, the years where you're no longer in the early, cool spring or the intense heat of the summer. Autumn starts to cool down and life starts to settle.

This is Thu Sister. It's important that life be recorded and shared because autumn (Thu) is too short a season to take for granted.
