This qualitative study focuses on the relationship between Community Cultural Wealth and the model minority myth and how these factors shape first-generation Vietnamese females’ ability to successfully graduate from their undergraduate university programs. The research includes participants who identify themselves with the following demographic attributes: first-generation, female, college-graduate, and Vietnamese. Study participants range between the ages of 21 to 25. The common higher education trend of aggregating data on Asian American groups contributes to the invisibility and lack of attention some sub-groups experience, specifically those who identify themselves as Southeast Asian American students. This study sheds light on how Community Cultural Wealth contributes to first-generation Vietnamese females’ success in higher education in responding to the need to expand existing research literature about the Vietnamese narrative.
