Sandy'Ci Moua's father, Hauly Chongsher Moua (Col. Moua Houa) was a Hmong soldier for the C.I.A. He was the air traffic controller for the secret Long Cheng base and guided the last plane out.
Her mother, Karry Moua (Kayeng Xiong), got the name "Sandy" from dusty English school textbooks.
Moua's family arrived in Minnesota late in the summer of 1980.
Sandy'Ci was born in Minneapolis and raised in St. Paul's Frogtown and east side neighborhoods. Hmong is her first language.
