Ashley Pham

Ashley Pham is from Houston, Texas, and was born on August 13, 1997. She was her parents’ first child, and she had a lot of physical problems with herself as a baby. She had a heart condition and wasn’t expected to live, and if she did, it wouldn’t be foe long, the doctors told her parents. They called her a miracle baby, because she survived. She has two younger brothers, one at fifteen and the youngest is thirteen. Because of all her disabilities, she didn’t go to school until she was five or six years old. Originally, her mother intended to homeschool her, but her parents then decided to let her go to see how it would work out. It turned out she was more than fine and from then on, she attended the public school along with her two brothers. Her family  lived with her maternal grandparents and her uncle.

When Ashley was eight years old, she moved to Singapore and has been here for nine years. She came to ICS a year after coming to live in Singapore; the year before that she went to OFS (Overseas Family School). She goes to ICS while her two brothers go to another school, namely, SAS (Singapore American School). She and her family goes to visit her maternal grandparents every summer, and sometimes they go visit my father’s side of the family in Boston, Massachusetts. She is currently living in Singapore on Upper Thomson.
