In 1981, the First Baptist Church in Washington sponsored Sunny’s family as refugees from Laos to America. Sunny was the first in her family to graduate college. She graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelors in Political Science from UCLA in 2002. She earned her Juris Doctorate from NCCU in 2009. She has been working as an Assistant Public Defender for over a decade. She and her husband, Ben will celebrate their 12th Anniversary this year. Although will find her volunteering for many community projects, during her spare time she enjoys spending time with family. Her three nieces, two nephews, and goddaughter continually inspire and remind her of the importance of giving back to our country. For fun she enjoys taking aerial classes at a local studio, biking along Little Sugar Creek Greenway and going to the range with her husband.
