Year 9: Term 2: The Happiest Refugee

Anh Do

Anh Do (born 2 June 1977) is a Vietnamese-born Australian author, actor, comedian, and artist. He has appeared on many Australian TV shows such as Thank God You're Here and Good News Week, and was runner-up on Dancing With The Stars in 2007. He studied a combined Business Law degree at the University of Technology, Sydney.  ("Anh Do", 2016)

“The Happiest Refugee is both Anh Do’s debut in the literary industry, and a bruisingly honest depiction of his life to date. The book starts with Do’s parents meeting and falling in love in war torn Vietnam, and tracks a young Anh as he and his family journey from their homeland to a refugee camp in Malaysia and finally Australia." B. Owen Baxter ("Anh Do - Author", 2016)
