Pandemic provides challenges for Bad Axe exchange student

What began as a trip to America for education ended up becoming so much more for Vanessa Nguyen of Vietnam.

Nguyen’s journey in Bad Axe began in 2017, when she came here as an exchange student as a sophomore in high school.

Nguyen said she didn’t pick Bad Axe, but was randomly assigned to it, much like she was randomly assigned to the Harless family, who took her into their home.

After completing her one year at Bad Axe, Nguyen transferred to a private school in Chicago.

“Because the program was only one year, I had to move to a private high school if I wanted to complete high school in the U.S.,” Nguyen said. “I chose Chicago because it was close to Michigan, so I could visit my host family frequently.”
