Mee Moua said she is very proud how Hmong are doing after 40 years in the United States but Hmong needs to exercise more positive role models for younger generation.  
“Hmong like to talk about negative things more than positive things… The negative things affect our children’s perspective and make other communities believed that Hmong are bad… I would like to see Hmong leaders or/and the head of households talk about education; how many diploma, doctoral, lawyer degrees Hmong have and talk positive rather than negative things during events… This will lead to positive image for our Hmong community” said Mee Moua.
